Highlander Reading Express

Highlander Reading Express Logo

This summer, Howell Public Schools is adding a new bus to its fleet. However, this will not be your typical yellow school bus. Instead, it will be a unique mobile library. Each week The Highlander Reading Express will visit areas around our community to promote summer reading. Through this initiative, we hope to reduce summer reading loss, maintain student achievement levels and increase excitement for reading.
