Washtenaw County is Putting Wheels on Literacy
The “Bookmobile” is making its way through Ann Arbor to get reading on the road to success after a donation from the Kiwanis Club of Ann Arbor. The Children’s Literacy Network and Family Learning Institute will take the wheel behind their 2013 Ford Transit to spread their impact by helping at-risk students avoid summer slide and maintain reading levels while out of school. In addition to the implementation of the “Bookmobile,” the Children’s Literacy Network will hostevents at Mitchell Elementary School and the Colonial Square neighborhood throughout the summer. The Family Literacy Institute also plans to use the van throughout the school year for transporting supplies to various schools in the region.
