Henrico Public Schools offering rolling resource center

Henrico County

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Henrico County Public Schools’ rolling resource center is hitting the road this summer.

The repurposed school bus will be stopping in neighborhoods across the county Monday through Thursday.

More than a bookmobile, the bus will also provide parenting information, interactive activities and mini-workshops.

“While we regularly provide amazing and enriching books for bus visitors, our overarching goal is transformative community engagement at each stop,” said Adrienne Cole Johnson, HCPS’ director of family and community engagement. “It’s important that our efforts are inclusive, individualized, integrated and impactful. The mobile resource center enables us to put that into action and embodies the things that are core to our outreach: access, opportunities and information.”
