The Book Bus is a mobile literacy outreach committed to developing the joy of reading, building home libraries in under-resourced neighborhoods, and educating parents in effective methods to help their children become proficient readers.
Our book bus offers four programs:
- Direct Instruction is provided during the school day to primary-age students needing additional support in reading.
- After-School Visits take place in communities so that any child, regardless of the school they attend, can visit the bus.
- Parent Education equips adults with tools that encourage reading at home and build communities of readers.
- Summer Programs will start in 2022. There will be STEM activities, art fun, math days, science exploration and more!
