Book mobiles hit the road May 30 to promote summer reading

May 19, 2023

     The district’s two bookmobiles—called Pow and Explore—are about to hit the road to bring a summer of reading to Gwinnett students! Our bookmobiles are returning to neighborhoods next week to bring library books to our students where they are this summer… at home! Starting on Tuesday, May 30, 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 books to students who may not have easy access to the public library.

     The bookmobiles 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. The weekly schedule (11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday) will repeat each week through Tuesday, July 18. (Note that the bookmobiles will not travel on June 19 or July 4.)

From May 30 until July 14, the GCPS School Nutrition Program will offer meals to children visiting the bookmobiles at the first four stops each day, Monday through Friday. Each day, the Atlanta Community Food Bank will provide snacks at each stop.
