National Bookmobile Day is a mobile way to get keiki in the community reading.
It celebrates all of the nation’s Bookmobiles along with staff members and volunteers who dedicate their time to bring this service to their communities every day.
The bookmobile currently travels to 13 sites weekly providing families on the Waianae coast access to books.
The car visits locations like the Boys & Girls Clubs of Waianae and Nanakuli, as well as family homeless or emergency shelters like Pai’olu.
In addition to books, the bookmobile is equipped with laptop computers and tablets for the children and their caregivers to use.
Since 1971, Hawaii Literacy has helped thousands of adults learn the basic reading and writing skills to get better jobs, improve their parenting skills, and succeed in life.
