In West Central Florida, lives these amazing, well-stocked, library corners, full of some of the greatest classic kid’s books of all time.
These libraries are built, developed, and nurtured by none other than WEDU PBS, and wouldn’t you know it, they buy so many of their books from us! WEDU is a PBS member television station located in Tampa, Florida, and serves the Tampa Bay Area including St. Petersburg, Clearwater, Sarasota and Lakeland.
The book specialists at Bulk Bookstore are always happy to shine the spotlight on our standout customers, because, well, they make life so good.
Gail Taylor, the director of educational services for WEDU PBS, has held a very special title for the last five years.
She is the wonderful woman responsible for managing and coordinating all of the educational outreach for WEDU PBS and the PBS affiliate. This affiliate serves 16 counties in West Central Florida, making Gail Taylor one very busy lady.
Because WEDU has created library corners in 16 locations throughout their viewing area, they’ve now taken on the role of stocking their libraries with books. Each library corner includes PBS Kids books, and a number of books ordered straight from Bulk Bookstore. As if these library corners didn’t already sound cool enough, they also plan to host a Bob the Builder family engagement event in partnership with a local children’s museum and will be distributing free books to children.
I know what you’re thinking – why can’t we have this slice of heaven in the rest of the world?
Maybe Gail will figure that out one day, but for now, she’s busy ordering children’s books in bulk with titles like:
And at Bulk Bookstore, we’re so happy to be able to help Gail in any way that we can.
Be well. Read well.
