About the Mobile Library Task Force
The Mobile Library Task Force is a team whose primary goal is to advance literacy in West Fargo through mobile library and outreach services, specifically through the use of the Little Red Reading Bus.
Specifically, the Mobile Library Task Force will work to advance literacy in West Fargo by helping plan the Little Red Reading Bus’s service route for Summer 2021 while focusing efforts on service to low-income and underserved children and families. The team will also work to improve mobile library services through fund raising and community partnerships and advocate for library programs and services in the community.
A critical component of the Mobile Library Task Force will be to help plan the Little Red Reading Bus’s mobile library service for summer 2021. This summer service will help fulfill a host of community needs such as providing books for low-income families, decreasing summer learning loss in West Fargo students, providing children access to and a choice of books, communicating the value of reading to West Fargo residents, increasing West Fargo student reading achievement and, of course, providing a fun and unique summer activity for children.
There are five volunteer positions on the Mobile Library Task Force, with one position open to a resident who resides within the boundaries of the West Fargo Public School District, and others representing the West Fargo Public Library board of directors, Friends of the West Fargo Public Library, West Fargo Public Schools, and West Fargo Educational Foundation.
The West Fargo Public Library board of directors appoints each member who will serve a one-year term.
