Embrace Books - Muskegon's Free Library!

The cornerstone of all education is the ability to read.  When I was young, there was no higher priority on my parents list of rearing kids was me being able to read and by the time I was about 4 books like the "Cat in the Hat" were easily read through on my own.

Today, it's getting tougher and tougher to get kids to read.  Sure when I was 4, Dr. Seuss was about as exciting as it got, but today, television, internet, movies, hand held devices etc all seem to keep kids entertained but a portion of the necessary things are being forgotten by some.  A sincere focus has to be placed on the development of reading in our young people.  It's a commitment that has to be kept by parents and turned into an adventure....that will lead to a life long love of reading...imagination and thought.

 While media delivery has had a paradigm shift over the last couple decades....simply better place to read than books.  Embrace Books of Muskegon sees the need and they have established a spot just for you.

Located at 1050 W. Southern Avenue, Embrace books is a free library open to anyone who would like to get a few books!  Grab them for your kids, grab them for yourself and if you have a supply of books on hand....share them with others!  The library is only open certain times of the month for the moment, but as it grows I'd be willing to bet you'll see more time when it's open.

Offering over 10,000 books, all donated by the community Embrace Books offers reading for every level and life stage.  You'll find books on just about anything and the best part of it all.  It won't cost you a penny.  Everything at Embrace Books is free of charge.

I met with Taleah Faith, who runs the Embrace Books Library in Muskegon and we talked a little about the concept, the mission and the desire to make reading easy, free and accessible to anyone.  Have a look at the video clip below.

Embrace books will be open to the public on January 23rd from 2p-5p.  Stop in and see them and grab yourself a few books.  For your kids....for yourself and for the future!
