The Little Red Reading Bus

About the Little Red Reading Bus

The Little Red Reading Bus delivers the joy of reading to kids across West Fargo and beyond during the summer months. We know that introducing reading to kids, especially at a young age, sets them up for success. We also realize that not all children have books at home or a means to go to the physical library, so we bring the books and library experience directly to them instead!  Check out our 2021 Summer Boost Impact Report to learn more about why we are so passionate about this program!

The Little Red Reading Bus was started in 2018. Thanks to our supporters, in just three short years, the Little Read Reading Bus has evolved from an idea into an outreach program of the West Fargo Public Library.
