The GCPS Book Mobile promotes literacy at schools and in our community. Over the summer, the two book mobiles serve as a mobile library bringing books to children in the Norcross and Lilburn areas, specifically in the Meadowcreek and Norcross clusters. During the school year, the book mobiles visit schools across Gwinnett County giving free books to students helping them to build their own personal libraries. The goal of the GCPS Book Mobile initiative is to promote the love of reading for all.
