About Read Rover and Read Rover Plus  

A view of the Read Rover Plus vehicle.Photo of Story Time in Read Rover Van

Read Rover and Read Rover Plus support BCPL's mission to foster a lifelong love of reading in children. This is accomplished through our monthly visits to licensed day care providers.


Each month we perform a story time and help providers to check out materials. Our story time programs incorporate pre-reading skills which prepare the children for entering school.


Our storytellers model successful techniques during the programs to teach day care providers important early literacy skills that they can then share with the children and their parents.


Themed flyers are distributed each month containing booklists, reading tips, a rhyme or fingerplay, and a craft. Picture books, teacher resources, easy non-fiction, concept books, CDs, DVDs, and storytelling materials are all available for checkout to further support this goal.
