June 9, 2011—After a very successful first summer, “The Reading Express,” Klein ISD's bookmobile program, started its second year this week with extended routes and additional days. The goal of “The Reading Express” program is to provide summer reading opportunities to students who might not otherwise have access to a library.
The Reading Express will be on the road Mondays through Saturdays from June 6 through July 23 and will stop at locations extending from the northern to the southern boundaries of the district. For more information and to see a schedule of the stops, click here.
Last summer more than 3,000 books were circulated during the seven-week program.
Original funding for The Reading Express was provided through a grant from the Klein Education Foundation. The program continues through the collaboration of many departments and schools across the Klein ISD.
