Union County Public Schools is getting books into students hands with a mobile book bus.
The mobile book bus will hold a six-week tour across the county. The bus will make over 100 stops in the six weeks serving thousands of students. Students will be able to receive multiple free books.
According to WBTV, “after the pandemic paused summer programs last year, this is the first time since 2019 that the mobile book bus is rolling into summer camps and community programs to deliver books to elementary students.
“It’s been a great community effort to try to enhance literacy when students are typically not in the school building,” said Superintendent Andrew Houlihan.
The mobile book bus ends on July 29.
