HOUSTON COUNTY, GA – Twelve Houston County elementary schools are participating in the annual Book Mobile program to place books in the hands of students during the summer break.    Two bookmobiles will run routes across the county beginning June 4.  Each school participating in the program has informed their students on the days and times the bookmobile will be in their neighborhoods.     

Research shows that most students regress one to two reading levels from not reading during the summer break. The goal of the bookmobiles is to help maintain or improve reading skills of students.
