Access to Reading Materials
The ReadOKC On the Go! Book Buses are ADA-compliant school buses that have been modified into traveling book buses. They visit all OKCPS elementary, middle, and high schools each school year, allowing each student to select a book of their choice from a wide variety of genres and titles to add to their home library.
Over 50,000 books have been distributed to students since July 2021.
Interested in Volunteering?
Volunteer participation is vital the success of the ReadOKC initiative. From assisting at school visits, to restocking the buses, our caring volunteers have a hands-on role in making a positive impact in our community. All book bus volunteers must complete the OKCPS District Volunteer Application each school year to be eligible to serve.

ReadOKC Little Libraries
“Take a book, leave a book” is the simple concept of the ReadOKC Little Libraries. There are currently 67 Little Libraries serving the Oklahoma City community, with one outside every OKCPS school and at several public parks.
You can help by serving as a Little Library Steward! Contact email@example.com to learn more.
“The Little Library has brought an excitement for reading to our students, especially first thing every morning. Our students exit their cars and buses in the morning and swap out their books. It allows our kids to always have a book in their hand.”
Mr. Lisenby, Principal of Ridgeview Elementary
