The Amazing Reading Bus

The Amazing Reading Bus Returns!

The Amazing Reading Bus will be traveling to neighborhoods near you this summer beginning on June 20 and running through August 11! The bus is stocked with books for toddlers through middle school age students. It works just like a library, you may check books out and then return them when you are done or before the last day on the schedule. We are unable to stop at all of our Allendale neighborhoods, but you may visit any of the locations listed on the schedule to participate.


The Reading Bus will be resting July 4 through July 7, and will be back on the road on July 11. The week of August 8 we will visit each stop to collect books.


Don’t forget to watch for the bus in the Independence Day parade on July 4. And, don’t miss the Amazing Reading Bus participants party on August 12. A Movie Extravaganza will be held on August 16 for all participants who have returned all of their books!


We do collect a parent phone number and email address in case of emergencies and for book return reminders. We will be using Class DoJo, which many of the elementary school teachers also use for communication with parents.


How many books will you discover this summer?
