2021 Summer Reading Program
From June 21st to August 13th, our Big Red Reading Bus will be hitting the road for our Summer Reading Program.
With weekly and monthly bus stops at many of our community partners and schools, we will be providing access to free books and literacy activities for over 1,500 kids each week.
We’re excited to partner with MMSD and MSCR summer school sites, MSCR Camp Compass, Wil Mar Neighborhood Center, Neighborhood House, Lussier Community Education Center, Theresa Terrace Neighborhood Center, Elver Park Neighborhood Center, BLW Neighborhood Center, Girls Inc, Boys & Girls Club of Dane County, Bayview Foundation, Goodman Community Center, Vera Court Neighborhood Center, MMSD Play & Learn, MSCR Art Cart, MSCR Fit2Go, Sina Davis Movies in the Park, Middleton Outreach Ministries, River Food Pantry, Middleton Cross Plains Area School District, and Sun Prairie School District.
If you’re an educator or agency that provides services to kids (birth-18) and you’re interested in receiving books to support student reading goals over the summer, you can request books here.
Here's how you can continue to help us keep kids reading this summer:
