Catch the Buzz - B. Bus Brings Books to Neighborhoods!

“Catch the Buzz...” The B. Bus mobile library is coming to town this summer. The B. Bus library is an old school bus converted into a library on wheels, and it will be pulling into different locations all over Barry County throughout the summer, from June 18 through Aug. 17. The goal of the B. Bus project is to motivate students to continue reading through the summer months and provide easy access to books. The B. Bus will supplement summer reading programs at local libraries and hopefully make books more accessible to students who might have a hard time or not be able to get to the libraries.
