Marking International Literacy Day with the Publication of The Bookwagon

After receiving mention on literacy blogs from England to Australia, the Bookwagon program now has a manual. The Bookwagon has been made available online to community literacy practitioners across the English Speaking world.

The Bookwagon program is a year-round, door-to-door book lending and literacy support program that was created in 2003 by Cheryl Brown and Wendell Dryden. It was developed in consultation with families in Saint John’s Crescent Valley neighbourhood. Over the past eight years, the wagon has made nearly 300 trips, allowing families to borrow more than 20,000 books.
