School district officials are reporting that the Gwinnett County Public Schools book mobile has proven to be popular this summer throughout its 35-stop route in the Meadowcreek cluster.
The book mobile will continue through July, but after three weeks of service by late June, the former school bus turned “library on wheels” served more than 2,400 students and parents who have visited the bus. More than 3,600 books have been checked out as well.
The book mobile is filled with more than 4,200 books that students can check out for free. In addition, the mobile library is staffed with media specialists who help students find books that best match their age and reading level. In the fall, the book mobile will transition from a checkout system to a book giveaway.
