We are Hidden Gems Literary Emporium
This year, Hidden Gems is actively seeking help to realize its goal of purchasing and reconstructing a motorhome into a state-of-the-art book fair on wheels. The Hidden Gems bookmobile will be the first bookmobile to return to the New Brunswick community in many years. The family's goal is to acquire the bookmobile by National Bookmobile Day, April 17, 2024.
"The dissemination of knowledge is a social obligation. This is why we dedicate our lives to ensure that everyone within our reach has access to educational tools, and opportunities to learn and grow".- Kaila Boulware Sykes.
Hidden Gems have distributed over 60,000 books across the world, to schools, communities and families through their community events and Free Book Festival program. After the birth of their daughter, Wisdom Annael, Hidden Gems launched a NICU initiative as well, gifting books for mothers to read when visiting their children. Hidden Gem's mission has earned them national attention on The Today Show, CNN, Fox Business, Pix11 News, and more.
