Request the Readmobile

Thanks for your interest in the Readmobile! There are no fees or charges associated with a Readmobile visit, but we do have a few guidelines designed to make our visit a high quality educational experience. Check these out, fill out the form below or call us at (423) 209-6190, and we’ll look forward to visiting you!

Guidelines:

  • Groups should be limited to 30 students or fewer at a time, with no more than 2 years age difference in a given group. 
  • If you have more than 30 students, not to worry. We can visit several different classrooms in a single day if you let us know in advance how many sessions you’ll need per grade level.
  • All locations should have an appropriate space for students to gather for a read-aloud. This is preferably indoors in a setting with minimal distractions – like a classroom or library.
  • The group will need continuous adult supervision from the teachers or adults normally in charge.
  • A typical session will last about 30-45 minutes depending on the age and maturity of the students.
  • Mr. Stewart, the Readmobile Coordinator, will talk with the contact person(s) at your organization to assure that the books read are content- and age-appropriate and the activities are related to current curriculum and subject matter familiar to the children. 
  • The Readmobile is very popular! Please make your request 4-6 weeks in advance. It’s also very LARGE – 36 feet long by 13 feet high by 7 feet wide. Please make sure we have adequate parking for safety and easy in and out access

Once you’ve submitted this form, the Readmobile Coordinator or other READ 20 staff will confirm the date, time and location for your request.
