It's about that time where students put down their textbooks--and too often, don't pick up another book until summer is over. Studies show that students who do not read over the summer experience a decrease in reading abilities. Bridging the gap of this summer loss begins with getting books in the hands of children.
The Greeneville City School District's Book Bus is a traveling library for students to enjoy over the summer. Students will have the chance to browse the book selections, exchange books, hear stories, and eat snacks. All students are encouraged to participate because we want this to foster a love for reading that will last a lifetime.
The Book Bus travels to multiple stops in the community, where students can choose and exchange books. The Summer 2016 Book Bus Schedule is now available.
