Thank you to everyone who made Buford the Book Bus possible this summer!

Buford the Book Bus

This summer Library Media Services' Buford the Book Bus hit the streets of Austin. "This was not our normal setup, but we were able to get books into children's hands!", said Stella Bromley, librarian at Library Media Services.

In collaboration with Austin ISD Nutrition & Food Services, librarians joined the curbside Summer Meal Program. "AISD always strives to be a full-service district, we are feeding their bodies and their brains.", Shannon Pearce, librarian at Library Media Services.
