Last week marked a milestone for ReadOKC, the OKCPS Compact’s reading and literacy initiative led by the Oklahoma City Public Schools Foundation. The ReadOKC On the Go Mobile Book Bus has officially donated more than 10,000 books to Oklahoma City public school students.

ReadOKC was the compact’s first initiative, launched in 2017 with a mission to instill a love of reading in our students and community. This mission is guided by three strategic objectives: Organize reading challenges during school holidays and give students the goal of reading at least 20 minutes a day; connect caring adults with students as reading companions to read with and mentor them; providing access to reading material through small libraries and the ReadOKC On the Go Mobile Book Bus.
