What is the Bookmobile?
The BCS Bookmobile is a mobile library and more. It is an accessible tool for our Pre-K Early Learning Centers, BCS students, and the families of Buncombe County to have literacy materials throughout the year. We work hard to have the most updated inventory on board to help with the literacy growth of the students of Buncombe County.
We hope to see you at one of our sites throughout the year!
How can families participate?
Families can participate by visiting one of our community sites labeled with an asterisk. Weekly attendance will give your child access to new literacy each week that can assist in their growth and love for reading. There is no registration required except that you and your child live in the Buncombe County School District. Please take advantage of this opportunity for your child and their development in reading.
Here are some awesome resources you can use at home:
Ready Rosie is an evidence-informed and research-based family engagement and early learning resource.
