“Books on the Bus” is an outreach program designed to engage families and the community in activities that will support the well-being and success of schoolchildren.
The Fauquier County Public Schools is the lead agent in the effort that has many community organizations partnering in support.
BOB will travel throughout the county on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays to bring literacy activities, music and physical movement fun.
New and gently-used books will be available at no cost to children at each “bus stop.”
The program kicks off June 12 and concludes July 27, with a break during the week of the Fourth of July.
