Del Norte County: Bus needs funds

from the Del Norte Triplicate

“The Wonder Bus, a multicolored vehicle that travels across Del Norte providing young children and their parents with family-oriented reading resources, is on the hunt for more funding to increase its services. As the Del Norte Library District Board heard at its meeting last week, the Wonder Bus, which is overseen by First 5 Del Norte, has had to cut back its services as of late … For a number of years First 5 had a school readiness grant and Americorps members staffed it … but it no longer has the school readiness grant [and] needs to find new revenue. That new revenue is why [First 5] approached the Library Board.”
