|Hornets Book Bus & Hugo’s HOUSE OF READING
On April 16, 2013, the Hornets Foundation and Lowe’s® launched the Book Bus, a full-service literacy bus and program that inspires students ages 5 through 13 to develop a love for reading. During the school year, the Book Bus travels to elementary schools in Charlotte and surrounding areas, and Hugo the Hornet performs an interactive and entertaining program that motivates students to pick up a book and enter Hugo’s House of Reading. After each program, one class from each school takes a journey through the Book Bus and each student selects a brand new book to take home. The Book Bus is a year-round program, and during the summer you can find Hugo and the Book Bus performing shows for the YMCA’s Y-Readers program, the YWCA and Charlotte-Mecklenburg libraries.
