Metro will also “get on board” through a “Read & Ride” program encouraging families to read while riding the Metro. Metro will feature its own CEO, Terry Garcia Crews, reading with children in ads that will be displayed on all 333 of its buses. The Library and Metro have long been partners since many of the Library’s branches are on a bus route. Check out the locations page on the Library’s website to see which ones can be visited by riding the Metro.
