Since we haven't been able to gather in a group to listen to a book, books are gathering in several different spots around Grand Rapids thanks to a partnership between Storytime GR and Rockford Construction.

Storytime GR strives to create a more equitable educational landscape by providing new, high-quality books free of charge to children birth-17.

Due to social distancing, it's been harder to gather and hand out books to children who need them. So thanks to Rockford Construction, there are new Storytime GR Book Pantry units located at various places around the city:

  • Hispanic Center of West Michigan
  • Other Way Ministries
  • Little Light Preschool
  • GRPL- Seymour & Madison Square Branches (Coming Soon)
  • Garfield Park (Coming Soon)

To receive updates on the latest book pantries or where they'll be handing out books next, visit their Facebook page or call (616)-808-1630.
