PCL’S Big, Red Bus is at a Schoolyard Near You!

July 25, 2016 - 4:23pm -- jfuentes

Thanks to a renewable, three year grant from United Way, PCL currently is taking summer reading and math out on the road to visit ten public elementary schools and several City-run summer and sports camps on a regular weekly schedule. Carrying 4,000 popular books for youth readers, a sound system, shade tents, tables and chairs, “life-size” board games, mobile hot spots for WiFi access and computers, PCL is using the "Summer Reading in the Schoolyard" project to reach out to children and families in local neighborhoods that might not otherwise participate in summer learning activities.It's clearly working, too, because the mobile library staff served an astonishing 630 visitors last week, despite the heat! See the full story under the Summer Reading 2016 tab of our website.
