PAKRAT’s Book Bus is Ready to Roll!

June 7, 2022

PAKRAT’s  “Roll and Read” book bus begins its 2022 summer schedule on June 13th.

We’re bringing the PAKRAT Roll and Read Book Bus to a site near you this summer, and it’s completely free to check out books!

What:  The PAKRAT Roll and Read book bus will be coming to a neighborhood near you! Come check out your favorite books from the library on the bus!  Our book bus is open to children of all ages, birth through grade 8, and completely free!  We will also have a bag of math activities with math manipulatives for you to keep.

When:  Every Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday afternoons during the summer.  Please come to any location that is convenient for you.  Everyone is welcome at all stops!  The PAKRAT Book Bus will not run the week of July 4th – July 8th.

Returning Books:  We do not charge for lost books in the summer!  Our goal is to keep every child reading over the summer to prevent the summer slide.  You can return your books at any stop, any week during the summer or to any school in District 742 in the fall.
