Bus Book Boxes

Book Boxes Coming to A2 STEAM Busses!

We had such a successful Used Book Sale, and we are so thankful to be able to use the books leftover from the sale for so many great purposes - sending home extras with students in need, refreshing our Little Free Libraries on school grounds, adding books in good condition to the library.... and now creating 4 book boxes that will rotate through our A2 STEAM busses!

Over 120 books were placed into 4 book boxes! The boxes themselves will be introduced to students the week of April 29, 2019 in library classes. They will start to go out on the busses the week of May 6, 2019.

There are a variety of book formats - board books, picture books and chapter books in the bins. If students choose to start a chapter book on the bus, they have the option to fill out their name on a special bookmark to hold their place until next time.

From time to time, students may forget and bring books home with them accidentally from the bus boxes. We have labeled these clearly with a bright green sticker that says "A2 STEAM Bus Box Book" so you know to send them back.

We know that the books can get old over time, so there is a plan in place to rotate the boxes among the busses about every month. However, if you find that you have books you would like to donate to this cause, please feel free to bring them to the school library to be included!
