The Summer Book Mobile is Back!

MSD Summer Book Mobile

School may be out, but we're making sure our library books are still accessible and available for our students to check out during the summer months!

Beginning Tuesday, July 9 and continuing through August 22, 2024, the Monroe School District Book Mobile will traveling around the district and stopping at designated locations so that our students may continue to check out library books all summer long.

With the goal of keeping books in our students' hands throughout the summer, the MSD Book Mobile brings books to students who may not live in close proximity to the local public library. With a rotating selection of books from all genres for students of all ages, students are sure to find a book to enjoy inside the small school bus filled with books. No need to bring anything - we will have a laptop to check books in and out to students enrolled in our schools!

In partnership with our transportation department, book mobile stop locations were selected based on student population density in neighborhoods and distance from the local public library; however, stop locations may be adjusted throughout the summer based on student visitors at each stop.

Through regular reading, students develop confidence, fluency, increase vocabulary, and stretch their imagination. Studies show that when students continue learning over the summer months, they are more prepared for the start of a new school year. We are thrilled to be able to offer our students access to books via our Book Mobile so that they can continue to exercise their growing minds!
