Round Rock ISD staff, students and community members are invited to donate gently used books for the district’s Summer Pop-Up Library and Mobile Makerspace, which will travel across the district this summer as a “read and return” library.

All Round Rock ISD campuses will begin collecting gently used books starting April 11, 2016 as part of the Summer Pop-Up Library and Mobile Makerspace book drive.

The Summer Pop-Up Library and Mobile Makerspace will begin the first full week of June and run until August 1. The library will visit parks, public areas and apartment complexes in the east and west side of the district one day each week. A mobile makerspace will also travel throughout the district once weekly to bring hands-on creative activities to students.

“Reading is the most influential factor related to summer learning,” said Ami Uselman, Round Rock ISD director of library and media services. “Our goal is to get books in the hands of our students that need them most in an effort to prevent any loss of academic skills during the summer.”
