The Monrovia Reads Literacy Van will be making two appearances this week. On Aug. 4 the van will be at Huntington Oaks Shopping Center (south side of Huntington Drive between Monterey and Mayflower avenues) with its usual activities including story time and the ability for those attending to obtain a library card and check out books.
The van will also attend the Foothill Unity Center’s annual back to school event at Santa Anita Racetrack. When school resumes, the van will return to its regular schedule of visiting each of the elementary schools Monday through Friday afternoons.
The van is a joint project of Monrovia Reads and the City of Monrovia. An old Monrovia Transit Van was given a complete makeover with the generous assistance to Monrovia Reads from the Library Foundation, Foothill Credit Union, and the New Car Deals Association.
