The book delivery is one way that the organization Ride for Reading gets donated books into Las Vegas neighborhoods to help spark a lifelong love of reading for kids in underserved areas. Between local book donations and a heap of books from Better World Books, they’ve delivered 6,000 books into the community over the past three years.
The riders arrive early to load up on books. Then they ride with a Las Vegas police escort to the schools—this year, Ruby S. Thomas Elementary School—to distribute them to the students.
As you can see, the books are always well-received! Stay tuned for more photos and stories from the event, which takes place on Thursday, September 11th.
