Ready, set, read: The UCPS Mobile Book Bus is rolling into communities to serve thousands of students!
Get ready, Union County. The UCPS Mobile Book Bus is back and will be rolling into communities this summer!
Beginning June 13, the UCPS Mobile Book Bus will make nearly 100 stops at centralized locations throughout Union County. Elementary-aged children will have the opportunity to board the retrofitted activity bus and pick out an age-appropriate book at no cost to their families.
The UCPS Mobile Book Bus made its debut in the summer of 2018 and provided 8,000 books to thousands of local children, ultimately helping to ensure all students had access to books throughout the summer while also motivating them to work on literacy skills.
Now, thanks to generous book donations collected by the Union County Association of Educational Office Professionals, nearly 12,000 new and gently used books are ready and waiting to be distributed to elementary students this summer!
Want to make reading fun for your student this summer while also helping to build their home library? Check out the calendar below to find out when the book bus will roll into your community!
