Two days a week from June 12th to August 21st, staff members and volunteers got behind the wheel and greeted children boarding the bus and helped them pick out and check out books. As of the beginning of August, we had 200 kids visit the bus and had 465 books checked out! We also had a great variety of staff members, community members and volunteers who helped out each week. Some helped kids on the bus, others served as guest readers. We had more than 60 people take part in this effort meant to put books in the hands of kids in the summer and raise the excitement about reading. While this is mostly a summertime mobile library, look for the bookin’ bus at special occasions throughout the fall.
If you have a book that needs to be returned to the bookin’ bus and can’t make the final stop on the 21st, you can bring it to the administration office or any of our school offices.
