Books for Brook

Books for Brook is a?literacy initiative established in memory of Brook Doseger, a 2016 graduate of Nipissing University’s Concurrent Bachelor of Education degree. Brook inspired many during her time here at Nipissing and across the globe. A favourite quote of Brook’s was “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” (Dr. Seuss), reminding us of her passion for literacy, travel and community – a passion that will continue to be cultivated and supported through this initiative.
