This mobile pop-up library brings preschool classes and resources to neighborhoods without ready access to library branches. With the goal of preparing children for kindergarten, our instructors will bring the pop-up library to communities throughout Howard County. The unit will also serve as a mobile hot spot, providing internet access to the nearby community during each stop.
On the Road to Kindergarten mobile unit instructors will:
- teach classes
- lend books, activity kits, toys, and other library materials
- lend Chromebooks and hotspots
- provide information on library classes and events
- provide information on community resources/service
