The Waxahachie ISD Bookmobile is en route this summer and students are invited to grab a book and a craft packet provided by N. P. Sims Library.
The bookmobile is following district guidelines that include social distancing, wearing masks and having hand sanitizer available. Children will not be allowed to get in the vehicle but they will still have access to books.
Next dates for the bookmobile are Monday, June 29, at Northside Elementary from 10-11 a.m. and at Wedgeworth Elementary from 11 a.m.-noon. Tuesday, June 30, the Waxahachie ISD bookmobile will be at Park Place Apartments from 10 a.m.-noon.
This summer, students have the opportunity to keep a book rather than check one out.
“We thank St. Paul Episcopal Church helping provide this opportunity,” a spokesman said. “St. Paul Episcopal Church was selected to receive $20,000 worth of new books for kids by First Book, a nonprofit organization focused on providing equal access to quality education for children in need. The church donated books to the Bookmobile, libraries and other organizations in the community.”
Teachers were also able to get books for their classrooms. In previous years, WISD had books that students could check out from the Bookmobile. The Bookmobile was stocked enough for the first time in 2018 with giveaway books to supplement the ones that could be checked out.
