The Amazing Reading Bus

The Amazing Reading Bus

The Reading Bus is Back for the 2021 Summer!

The Amazing Reading Bus will be traveling to neighborhoods near you this summer beginning on June 21 and running through August 12!  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 5 through July 8, and will be back on the road on July 12. The week of August 9 we will visit each stop to collect books.  Don’t forget to watch for the bus in the Independence Day parade on July 3 at GVSU.

And, don’t miss the Amazing Reading Bus participants party on August 13.

Wearing a face mask will be required to enter the Reading Bus. Other sanitizing and precautionary measures will also be in place to keep our visitors safe.

We do collect a parent phone number and email address in case of emergencies, for book return reminders and for contact tracing if necessary.

How many books will you discover this summer?
