The Amazing Reading Bus

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.
