the reading nook, highpoint

How cute is this! Mamma has found the perfect little spot to have a shopping break at Highpoint!

The FREE Reading Nook is located in the IN:Transit area (near Degani Bakery) and is open to all. You just pull up a beanbag, grab a book and chill out in the bright cosy space.

It works like an exchange too, so you can collect a book and leave a pre-loved book of your own in its place - forming a mini library of sorts!

Oh and Mamma says this is not just for kids - there are plenty of books here for all ages. Love it!

As of Tuesday April 23 they will hold weekly story-telling sessions (every Tuesday at 11:00am and there will be regular visits from local toy libraries

Book donations are also welcome and can be placed in the Book Deposit Box located on the outside of the shipping container.
