The Book Bus is Here!
Western Allegheny Community Library, in partnership with West Allegheny School District and Monark Student Transportation, are launching a community Book Bus. This mobile library resource will serve as an extended outreach program to foster early literacy and Kindergarten readiness for the area’s youngest children.
The Book Bus will begin traveling throughout the community in June, circulating books to children and educational resources to parents, as well as conducting early childhood focused educational activities. The Bus will also support current library outreach programs like senior center and preschool visits. For more information, visit our Book Bus page.
WACL "Kindles" a Love of eBooks
Now available at the library are five new Kindle eReaders, complete with a starting library of eBooks. Waiting forever for the latest bestseller? Check out a Kindle - 20 bestselling titles are available to read TODAY on one device!
Why Check Out a Kindle?
- You get tons of great reads at your fingertips with ONE easy checkout.
- Kindles check out for three weeks, so you can enjoy several books before returning.
- A Kindle is lighter than a paperback book, so they’re great for vacations or to take on the go.
- Each Kindle comes pre-loaded with a library of titles, plus charging cable and case. No special knowledge required—it’s literally tap and read.
