Book mobiles hit the road May 31 to promote summer reading

May 27, 2022

The district’s two book mobiles—called Pow and Explore—are about to hit the road to bring a summer of reading to Gwinnett students. Our book mobiles are returning to neighborhoods this week to bring library books to our students where they are this summer… at home! Starting on Tuesday, May 31, the two mobile libraries will travel routes that will take them to 90 stops in five clusters every week. The colorful converted school buses will make nine stops per day, checking out school library books to students who may not have easy access to the public library.

The book mobiles will travel routes in the Berkmar, Central Gwinnett, Discovery, Meadowcreek, and Norcross clusters. These libraries on wheels will be stocked with books for all ages and reading levels—Pre-K to 12th grade—pulled from the shelves of each cluster’s media centers. The weekly schedule (11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday to Friday) will repeat each week through Friday, July 22. (Note that the book mobiles will not travel on May 30, June 20, or July 4.)

Each day, the Atlanta Community Food Bank will provide snacks at each stop. From May 31 until July 15, the GCPS School Nutrition Program will offer meals to children visiting the book mobiles at the first four stops each day, Monday through Friday.

Find a link to the routes are on www.gcpsbookmobile.org. This summer, you also can follow the book mobiles on Twitter and Instagram @gcpslibraries or through the hashtag #GCPSBookMobile.
