First Regional Library Words on Wheels BookWagon

Thursday, August 29, 2019 3:55 PM | Carol Green

After a short hiatus, First Regional Library’s Words on Wheels BookWagon will soon be back on the road.


An extension of FRL’s branches, the BookWagon offers a unique and free early literacy experience for preschool-age children in DeSoto, Lafayette, Panola, Tate and Tunica counties.  Meridith Wulff took on the role of Regional Youth Specialist on May 1, 2019 and is the Words on Wheels visit coordinator and BookWagon driver. Children and their teachers and/or caregivers will board the BookWagon for engaging early literacy programming. Afterward, teachers and caregivers may check out age-appropriate books and other library materials as well as resources for parenting and teaching young children.


The regular service priorities are childcare centers in FRL’s service area, but the BookWagon will also appear at community events and library programs as availability allows.  Visits are requested via First Regional Library’s website. “Our communities have missed seeing the Words on Wheels BookWagon on the road,” said Wulff. “I’m so excited to bring early literacy and the love of books to the children in our area.”
