GCPS Book Mobile

Did you know GCPS operates two Book Mobiles year-round? The mission of the GCPS Book Mobile program is to put books into the hands of children! Last summer, the Book Mobiles were able to give away 61,106 books in June and July. This summer, the Book Mobiles return to a true mobile library visiting 100 stops per week for students to checkout books.

Please help support this effort by ordering the 2021 GCPS Book Mobile T-shirt! These are the softest shirts EVER! (click the image to see the design) Adult sizes are $26, and youth sizes are $22 (plus shipping) and will be shipped the week of May 10th. The more shirts sold, the more funds are available to purchase books and continue this valuable summer program.

Even though the Book Mobile 5K was canceled this year, you can still get a t-shirt without breaking a sweat! We need your help! Removing barriers to literacy will help avoid the 'summer slide'. We hope you'll share this opportunity with your friends too!
