Summer reading hits the streets in Houston County as two book mobiles tour various neighborhoods.
In the second year of the program 20 schools signed up to help students and their families have better access to books.
Each person can check out two books at a time. The book mobiles also partnering with the school system's summer free meals program.
Parents says the book mobile saves them trips to the library, and it keeps their kids' minds active during the lazy days of summer.
"Their vocabulary will become stronger if they read more. They have more of an attention span. I just think it's a great thing for the kids to learn over the summer," says parent Rhondolyn Johnson.
Andrea McGee, Eagle Springs Elementary Principal, says "We're just hoping by offering this book mobile we'll help give those students an opportunity that they may not have so that they can maintain the progress and work that they've done through the school year so they'll have a better start for the school year."
The summer book mobile runs through July 22nd. The program will be in a different neighborhood everyday during the week.
