Summer Book Bus

Bristol Tennessee City Schools and Bristol Public Library come together in a collaborative effort to provide fresh reading opportunities for students of all ages, assist families in the building of age-appropriate home libraries, and help ensure that students read on grade level by third grade.


Thanks to a grant award from the Governor's Early Literacy Foundation, in 2022 the Book Bus introduced a new look! Watch for the Book Bus this summer and also at community events throughout the year. It's always a good time to read!!

Quick Book Bus Information:

  • Free service to all children
  • Bristol Public Library cards not required to participate
  • Travels along BTCS summer feeding routes during selected dates in June and July
  • Books do not have to be returned.  All books distributed from the Book Bus are considered “forever books” and may be added to home libraries!
  • Schedule is distributed in elementary schools before dismissal for the summer break, on the BTCS website, and BTCS social media sites.
