OSWEGO – The Oswego Bookmobile stopped by Fitzhugh Park Elementary School recently, providing students with a fun-filled educational tour.
Each class was allotted twenty-five minutes on the bus, where FPS Literacy Specialists and Oswego Bookmobile volunteers Erin Wilder and Christine Haessig, spoke to the students about the bookmobile summer schedule and book suggestions.
This year’s summer reading theme is “Every Hero Has A Story!”
As part of the “Driving Books Home” initiative, the bookmobile will be traveling regular weekly routes throughout the Oswego community in July and August, providing students with the opportunity to continue strengthening their reading skills throughout summer vacation.
At each hour-long, scheduled stop, snacks will be provided for students as they search for their books.
The youngsters can bring books home, free of charge, with no requirement of returning them.
The bookmobile is a community-wide, collaborative partnership to encourage children to continue reading throughout the summer.
The Oswego Bookmobile will also be at East Park for Movie Nights this summer.
The dates include: June 24 – The Lego Movie, July 15 – Alexander and the Terrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, and August 19 – Big Hero 6.
According to Christine Haessig, a copy of the bookmobile summer schedule will be placed in each student’s report card envelope.
