Keep up with your reading during the summer by visiting one of the Providence Mobile Library’s scheduled stops in Providence this summer! The mobile library carries 4,000 popular books for youth readers. They also have a sound system, shade tents, tables and chairs, WiFi access and computers.
Children will be able to access free e-books on electronic devices and software will track how students invest their daily reading time. The mobile library is managed by a dedicated children’s specialist assisted by other Providence Central Library (PCL) staff and college age youth interns.
Providence elementary school classroom teachers and math coaches will provide hands-on math activities at each site.
