Books on Buses
In March 2002, People Mover initiated a Books on Buses program to promote both a love of reading and bus ridership for children. Every bus has a designated “Kids Reading Room” area with a selection of age appropriate books. Young riders are encouraged to select a book, read while they ride and return the book to the rack when they leave the bus.
Scholastic Books, through the Volunteers of America, made the program possible with their generous donations of books for the first seven years of the program. Due to a funding shortfall, they can no longer support the program. Thanks to the donations of Anchorage Public Library since 2009, Books on Buses has continued.
