Elementary school students in Delavan now have a mini library coming to a park near them over the summer months.
Turtle Creek Elementary School’s new “Summer Bookmobile” will be making its way to area parks on Thursday through August 14.
Turtle Creek students can come to the bookmobile van and check out books to read over the summer.
Research shows that students who read on their own over summer break can make tremendous gains in their reading skills. Students who don’t read over break often regress, sometimes as much as three months!
Teachers will take turns will be driving the bookmobile to the following parks on Thursday afternoons:
- Yadon Park, 2-2:30
- Pioneer Estates, 2:40-3
- Lower Springs Park, 3:10-3:30
- Lauterbach Park, 3:40-4
- Deckert Park, 4:10-4:30
- Arboretum, 4:40-5
- Veteran’s Park, 5:05-5:25
- Phoenix Park, 5:30-6
