The Vivacity Book Bus

Giving children an early positive experience with reading, find out if the Vivacity Book Bus is coming to your schools

Hop onboard the Vivacity Book Bus

Vivacity's brand new children's Book Bus is available to visit primary schools during term time.

Featuring a colourful exterior designed by local children’s author and illustrator Ellie Sandall, it offers a space for storytelling, plus plenty of books to inspire the imagination.
 
Designed especially for Key Stages 1 & 2, our aim is to encourage reading and help make a difference to children's literacy across the city.  The Vivacity book bus does this by helping introduce children to the library service while inspiring them to read for enjoyment.
We will liaise with schools in advance to ensure as many children as possible receive their own library card, to continue using in our other libraries across the city.
 
Please contact Vivacity's Reading Development Team to arrange a visit to your school, email bookbus@vivacity.org or use the form on this page.
