What is Buffalo BookBike?

The Buffalo BookBike is a summer literacy outreach program. It is a vehicle to distribute free, quality books to children and goes where the children are in the summertime – parks and playgrounds!

  • Keeps kids excited about reading throughout the summer in an effort to avoid the “summer slide” in which children of a lower socioeconomic status can lose 3-4 months of reading growth.
  • Focuses on parks in disconnected “book deserts” and where free lunches are served to reach Buffalo’s most vulnerable children.
  • Models active-living and encourages healthy lifestyle choices.
