Dream Bus

Dream Bus

Due to COVID-19 and impending winter weather, the Dream Bus will offer limited service in November and December by partnering with MSCR sites and community centers to make bi-monthly book drops at 23 community locations. MSCR school sites will make books available to students enrolled in on-site education or after school care at those locations. Community centers will make books available to all center visitors to use on site.

Quick Answers:

  • The Dream Bus will continue to accept returns when doing box drop offs at each location.
  • The Dream Bus will continue to accept library card applications at drop sites, from facilities and individuals; cards will either be provided for pick up at the facilities or mailed out.
  • There will be no service on 11/26, 11/27, 12/24, 12/25, 12/31, 1/1
  • Due to MSCR not having kids on site during break, the Dream Bus will not deliver during MMSD winter break December 21, 2020 - January 1, 2021.
