Bobcats Book Bus
The Bobcats Book Bus made its debut in April, 2013 at Albemarle Elementary School to great fanfare and high expectations.
“Giving back to our community continues to be a primary focus for our organization and this is another example of that,” Whitfield said. “Education is one of the three key pillars of our Cats Care initiative, and along with our partners at Lowe’s, we believe this bus will bring awareness to the importance of reading and emphasize to our local youth how significant reading is to accomplishing their long-term goals.”
The Book Bus is a full-service literacy bus that encourages reading and learning programs for kids between the ages of 5 and 13 with an interactive Reading with Rufus program. Visiting schools and summer reading camps, Rufus brings the joys of reading to kids and after each program provides kids a book of their very own.
