The RVA Book Buggy, sponsored by M&T Bank, made its debut in March of 2016. The Children’s Book Bank will use the the RVA Book Buggy to visit Title 1 schools, under-served preschools, and non-profit organizations to provide books and expand reading programs to children in need. Since gaining oversight of the Children’s Book Bank in 2012, the museum has distributed over 116,000 books to children, many of whom have never had the joy of owning a book. The RVA Book Buggy travels throughout Central Virginia in order to reach a greater number of at-risk children and provide important school readiness tools.
