Every winter, here in Salem, Oregon, the Salem Public Library and the Assistance League of Salem co-sponsor the 1st Grade Bookmobile R.E.A.D. program. During this remarkable program, the Bookmobile visits first graders at every school in the Salem-Keizer school district, issuing library cards and giving each child the opportunity to check out a book from the Bookmobile's collection. What better way to get young children excited about reading!
