In an effort to get kids reading this summer, the 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Road Trip RV will visit Bank Square Books on July 1 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Kids and families will have the opportunity to participate in their very own “pop-up” reading festival, meet some of their favorite authors, and engage in fun reading activities.
Throughout the summer, the RVs will visit 50 U.S. cities and towns nationwide, traveling more than 10,000 miles to spread the message about the importance of summer reading to kids. Families and communities can tracks the RVs, find local events, visit the tour schedule here: http://scholastic.com/summerroadtrip. Follow the Scholastic Summer Reading Road Trip live on social media via @Scholastic and #SummerReading.

- An activity tent filled with reading activities
- Giveaway tables and a prize wheel

More summer fun: To getting kids reading all summer, parents, educators, libraries and community partners can sign up kids for the 2017 Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge, a free, global, online and mobile reading program designed to help kids turn the “summer slide”—the learning loss which can occur over the summer months—into a “summer leap” by discovering the power and joy of reading for fun.
