Forty children from Harbor Child Care recently visited The Book Nook at National Wholesale Liquidators, located at 111 Hempstead Turnpike, to enjoy story hour with Hempstead Mayor Wayne Hall.
The Book Nook was launched this summer on the second floor of the West Hempstead store to encourage reading and promote education within the community. More than 1,000 books are now in place and ready for the community to come in and enjoy.
The Book Nook is an escape where individuals can relax with a great read or a parent can read to their children.
“As part of the Hempstead community we hope to be a driving force to promote education and the love of reading,” said Scott Rosen, CEO of National Wholesale Liquidators. “A solid education opens doors and as a local business that is something that we will always nurture.”
“The Book Nook Program is a welcome addition to the Hempstead community," said Mayor Hall. I commend National Wholesale Liquidators for their commitment to community and vision in making this delightful reading program available."
The family owned and operated company, founded by Eva Rosen in 1984, operates stores in the New York metro area – Cross County Shopping Center (Yonkers); Bay Parkway (Brooklyn); Co-op City (Bronx); Flushing (Queens), West Hempstead and Long Island City (Queens), Lodi and Jersey City (New Jersey); Middletown, NY and Dorchester, MA.
