UCPS rolls out annual book drive to support Mobile Book Bus, April 10-29

Union County Public Schools (UCPS) is hosting its annual book donation drive for the UCPS Mobile Book Bus. Running from April 10-29, this initiative aims to collect new and gently used books to support summer literacy programs for elementary-aged children across Union County.

The UCPS Mobile Book Bus, a beloved fixture in the community, is a vital resource for children during the summer months. Filled with thousands of books, the bus travels to summer learning camps and communities, providing children with the opportunity to select age-appropriate books at no cost to their families.
