Setting Up A Mini Family Library

Whatever the cost of our libraries, the price is cheap compared to that of an ignorant nation. —Walter Cronkite

I always believe setting up a cool reading corner for a child is one of the best ways to encourage them to read more. You don’t have to spend a fortune to renovate a room to make it a safe and fun library for your child. What you need is just a few simple steps as follows:-

Step 1: Pick a spot

The most ideal corner is a broad window that allows natural light in and fresh air.

Step 2: Choose your seating

A simple pillow on the floor. Easy and multifunctional and so inviting to kiddo. Parents are able to join the fun reading too.

Step 3: Plan your book storage

Find one that matches your room. It can be a classic book storage or fancy bookshelf that suits your needs.

Step 4: Make it cozy by adding some exciting objects

Make your child’s nook personal and cozy. Tents are never a bad idea in the endeavor and they make kids feel as though they have their own little hideaway for quiet time.

Step 5: Make it full of lights

If the place does not have enough light, your child will have trouble reading their books, it’s easy to feel sluggish and doze off.

Step 6: Fill it with books

Let's look at how this mommy transforms a corner in her daughters' room into an effective reading corner (isn't that cute?):


Setting a corner for reading at home is a great way to encourage reading culture among family members, especially precious little ones. It might take a little time and effort to decorate the corner and to make it functional, but the outcome is more than worthwhile.
