Access to a diverse collection of books can impact all who interact with it.

Reading Safari Room ***Opening in July***

It is uplifting to read books written by people who know you and your culture. It is enriching for those not of the culture to learn about a world outside their bubble.

EYGC has over 600 titles in its Reading Safari Room! All different reading levels and topics. We have books on Jamacia, civil rights, women scientists, board books with people of color, books on England and books written by African women, books in Spanish, Mandarin and MANY books! Yes, there are many diverse books in the local public libraries, but still not enough. Our goal is to have at least one book regarding every country in the world!

EYGC is currently working on a Dollar for Dollar matching grant from Gentex. This grant will help with the rental fee for the physical space, purchase new books, a laptop, decorations, signage and so on. Please consider supporting us!!!!

EYGC will open the Reading Safari Room in mid July, the location is at 200 S. Taft st. Zeeland, MI.  This space is part of City on a Hill but is on the opposite side of the road from the main City on a Hill building.  The exact opening date is TBD so keep an eye out for our announcement. 

Once the Reading Safari Room is open we will be in need of volunteers to help check in and out books. Please reach out to us if you or a group would be interested in supporting us with your time!

If you would like to support this specific program, we have a wishlist of books on Amazon. We also welcome donations of used books for all ages. Ideally, we would like them to be connected to other cultures, countries, race, etc. Contact us!

f you are interested in hosting one of our Traveling Libraries we still have that option as well. Feel free to check out the EYGC traveling Library at the Momentum Center in Grand Haven.
