The Camas School District’s Book MoBus was first launched in 2019 by teacher Jennifer Scott as a way to encourage summer reading. What started as a Book MoVan in 2019 has transformed into a traveling library on a school bus that visits elementary schools weekly across Camas for families to check out books, participate in literacy activities, and learn tips for supporting summer literacy. The Book MoBus has two more dates on its 2021 summer tour: Aug. 4 at Woodburn (9-11 a.m.) and Dorothy Fox (noon-2 p.m.) elementaries and Aug. 11 at Helen Baller Elementary from 9 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
