The Little Red Reading Bus
The Little Red Reading Bus delivers the joy of reading to kids across West Fargo and beyond by popping up at local parks, in neighborhoods and at community events. We know that introducing reading to kids, especially at a young age, sets them up for success in school and beyond. We also realize that not all people have books at home or a means to go to the physical library, so we bring the books and a library experience directly to them instead!
