Words on Wheels Bookwagon

First Regional Library believes that reading to young children early and often is the single most important thing that libraries, teachers and parents can do to encourage lifelong learning. The Words on Wheels BookWagon is an extension of local public libraries and offers a unique, free early literacy experience for preschool-age children in Desoto, Lafayette, Panola, Tate and Tunica counties.

A visit by the Words on Wheels BookWagon starts with the librarian inviting children and their teachers and/or caregivers on-board for a fun storytime or program featuring literacy-focused activities. Afterward, teachers and caregivers may check out age-appropriate books and other library materials as well as resources for parenting and teaching young children.
