Listen up, book lovers! There’s a new special space at SM Aura Premier where you can discover, read, and share stories.
The Book Nook, located at the mall’s fourth level, is a free library built with the intention of creating a community that believes in the value of sharing and the love of reading.
It was created in partnership with WTA Architecture & Design Studio, National Bookstore, Anvil Publishing, UV Care, and Samsung, together with SM Cares and The SM Store.
Explore a world of imagination by simply cracking open a book from this little library. With over 1,000 different works, it’s easy to dive right in while sitting at the designated reading benches. Should you fall in love with the book, there is no need to part with it. A number of books are free to take home; all you have to do in return is pay it forward by donating books, too.
SM Aura Premier will also be hosting activities like storytelling sessions, book launches, and meet-and-greet sessions with authors that will be presented both online and off.
Given that we’re still in the middle of a pandemic, contactless systems like contact tracing via the SM Supermalls QR code, Trace Together, and logging books are in place. There will also be a UV light box to ensure all books borrowed and donated are safe to be handled by the next book lover.
