THE BARINGS BOOK BUS & HUGO'S DREAM READERS

The Barings Book Bus is a full-service literacy bus and program that inspires students ages 5 through 11 to develop a love for reading. During the school year, the Barings 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 read every day. After each program, two classes from each school take a journey through the Barings Book Bus and each student selects a new book to take home. The Barings Book Bus is a year-round program, and during the summer you can find Hugo and the Barings Book Bus performing shows for the YMCA’s Y-Readers program, the YWCA and Charlotte-Mecklenburg libraries and more.
