TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - A Tippecanoe County School is bringing the classroom to students over the summer.
In an new effort to help students, Klondike Elementary School is now taking learning on the road.
Wednesday morning they stopped by the Point West neighborhood.
Patrick Campbell, 8, was first in line. That's something is mom Tracy Campbell is proud of, "It's a great opportunity for all the kids to get together and learn and check out books," she said.
The Klondike Bookmobile is the brain child of Tammy Weber who works in the library.
"We decided to start with Point West because it's close and because of the population they might not have access to books like kids who live right next to the library or have a bookmobile come," said Weber.
They'll hit the road again over the next few weeks to spread the importance of summer learning.
"During the summer months they may not have access to books and it's really important that they read over the summer. So they don't loose some of the skills they acquired during the school year," said Weber.
Indiana Department of Transportation road crews are preparing the roads for the first winter storm of the season.
