Highlander Reading Express

A banner image promoting the Highlander Reading Express

The Highlander Reading Express will be hitting the road again and running a weekly route all summer long. Each week The Highlander Reading Express will visit areas around our community to promote summer reading. Through this initiative, we hope to increase excitement for reading, maintain student achievement levels, and reduce summer reading loss.
