Cincy Book Bus Donates Books to Mt. Healthy South Elementary

The Cincy Book Bus stopped by Mt. Healthy South Elementary on Thursday morning to drop off donated books for classrooms. The owner, Melanie Moore, brought over 200 books for South’s classrooms, which is a value of over $1,400. The multicultural books will add more diversity into the reading lives of Mt. Healthy South students in addition to supporting the district’s literacy goals. Jennifer Simowitz, English Language Learner teacher, reached out to Mrs. Moore for the donation from her mobile bookstore located in a 1962 Volkswagen Bus. All profits from Cincy Book Bus sales are used to purchase books that are then donated to local schools and classrooms to share the love of reading with Cincinnati children in low income areas. What a wonderful way to share the joy of reading with students. “We were overjoyed and humbled by Ms. Moore’ s generous donation, and Jenny Simowitz for bringing that connection.  Through collaboration, they delivered some of our favorite titles, as well as some new selections that we are excited to share with our students.  This is just one more exemplary example of community partnership,” exclaimed Mrs. Lara House, Mt. Healthy South Principal. “It was absolutely the highlight of our South day!” Mt. Healthy South Elementary appreciates the kindness and support from The Cincy Book Bus and Mrs. Moore.
