Community Reading Bus

We have acquired a second-hand bus and plan to rip out the interior; carpet it, add settees, bookcases, lighting and games so that we can give a community area for parents to read and play games with their children. The space can be used for pre-school and after-school and can also provide another learning space throughout the day. At breaktimes the children would be able to use it as a library area and games room. The aim of the bus is to enhance social and literacy skills. It will allow families to visit a library (the closest libraries have closed down) and learn responsibility (we will encourage the children to look after and clean the bus). The bus will hopefully become a focal meeting point.
