MES Book Drive


Did you know that UCPS has a Mobile Book Bus? The purpose of the bus is to support a literacy initiative to provide elementary-aged students with books throughout the summer. During the summer months, the UCPS Mobile Book Bus will make stops at centralized locations across the county, including schools, summer camps, community events and centers, and more. With the help of UCPS volunteers and media coordinators, elementary-aged children will have the opportunity to board the retrofitted bus and pick out an age-appropriate book at no cost to their families. Please consider donating new and gently used books to support this important initiative to benefit the students of UCPS.
Our goal is to collect 2,000 books to be donated to the UCPS Mobile Book Bus program. Please bring your gently used or new book donations to the media center during the week of April 8th - 12th. Prizes will be given to the grade level that donates the most books.
