Big Red Reading Bus

Our Big Red Reading Bus is packed full of free books for kids.  We make scheduled stops at local organizations, libraries, events and schools to give away high quality books and other reading materials to kids ages birth to 18.  Our bus can be found at many public events and some of our regular stops.

“This project is exactly what Madison Community Foundation looks for – a commitment to learning, innovative ideas for mobile service, and the vision to evolve a program that will serve thousands of young people and their families/ We could not be more excited to see the Big Red Reading Bus roll around Dane County, delighting kids as they select from a wide variety of free books, accessing them in their home community.”
- Tom Linfield, vice president at Madison Community Foundation
