The Dream Bus + Forward Madison FC

This summer, Madison Public Library and Forward Madison FC are teaming up to provide opportunities for nontraditional library users to get introduced to the joy and excitement reading and other media can bring!

On select dates throughout the soccer season, the Dream Bus will be stationed outside Breese Stevens field to help get people signed up for library cards, offer outdoor browsing of materials and hand out We Read bags, stickers, zines and other givewaways. In fact, there will be a special, limited edition "We Read in a Flock" sticker for kids and families to enjoy.

You can visit the Dream Bus at Breese Stevens Field (917 E Mifflin St) during the following Forward Madison FC games:

  • Saturday, May 15 (first home game of the season)
  • Saturday, June 12
  • Saturday, July 24
  • Saturday, September 11
  • Saturday, October 30 (final home game of the season)
