About the Book Bus
The Book Bus is one of the eight American corners run by the American Library. It is sponsored by the American Embassy in Kathmandu and is operated by Quixote’s Cove.Since November 2013, the Book Bus has travelled over 10,000 kilometers in Nepal. It has visited over 80 schools, colleges, and community centers and reached out to over 60,000 people.
What we do
The Book Bus is equipped with a core collection of books, laptops, ipads, projectors, sound systems, internet connectivity, art supplies and moving exhibitions. Along with a librarian and driver, two to four instructors travel with the bus to conduct workshops for students and teachers.
Interested schools, colleges and community centers can request a Book Bus visit by filling out the visit request form below. We will get back to you as soon as we can, but please be patient! There is only one Book Bus and we have so many places and people who want us to visit them. We will try our best to accommodate everyone who writes to us, but it might not be very soon!
