Starting in June, two mobile libraries-- the new “EXPLORE!” Book Mobile and the “POW!” Book Mobile-- will travel 35-stop routes in the Meadowcreek and Norcross clusters each week, checking out school library books to students who may not have easy access to the public library.
The two book mobiles are stocked with books for all ages and reading levels—
Pre-K to 12th grade— pulled from the shelves of each cluster’s media centers. The weekly schedule (Monday through Friday, 10:30 a.m. to 5:45 p.m.) will repeat each week, starting Monday, June 4, and ending Friday, July 27.
GCPS has partnered with the Atlanta Community Food Bank to provide nutritious snacks for students visiting the book mobiles this summer. Children in the Meadowcreek and Norcross clusters who visit the book mobile will be able to check out two books and leave with a snack to fuel their minds and bodies.
During the school year, local schools can “Book the Bus” for a school or community event. For these visits, the book mobiles will be stocked with new books— purchased with donations or provided by sponsors— so that children can build their own personal libraries.
