Mobile Literacy Van
In early 2018 a new mobile literacy van will be launched. This Mobile Literacy van will stop at each of the 5 elementary schools every week during the school year. It will serve as a circulating library, a source for story and activity time and offer afterschool tutoring. When school is not in session, the Mobile Literacy Van will be in the Community at such functions as the Summer Reading Extravaganza and other Community events throughout the year.
This new Mobile Literacy Van will replace the original literacy bus, which was started in 2007. The bus was later incorporated into a program for literacy and recreation provided by the City of Monrovia as part of the Monrovia Area Partnership Program (MAP). Monrovia Reads provided support for the bus with books as well as funding.
