‘Books on the Bus’ to start in spring
Menominee County Library announces a new program starting this spring at Carney-Nadeau Schools. “Books on the Bus” will put fun, kid-friendly reading materials on the school buses. “Books on the Bus” items have a bright yellow sticker and can be shared or kept as long as need be. Books may be returned to the school bus or to the library.
Ann Best, outreach coordinator for Menominee County Library, was the inspiration to add “Books on the Bus” to the existing Station Stops the library maintains around the county. The Menominee County Library was gifted with an anonymous donation for book stickers and bags. Project Give stepped up and created a successful book drive. More than 800 items for the “Books on the Bus” program were collected in a couple of weeks. Principal John Eichhorn coordinated between the bus drivers, library and the Student Safety Patrol.
Anyone with questions, concerns or suggestions to improve this program can contact Amanda Winnicki at the Menominee County Library, 800-559-8194 or Principal Eichhorn at Carney/Nadeau Schools, 906-639-2171.
