MONROE - In partnership with Lamer's Bus Lines, the Monroe High School Key Club, under advisor Susan Lawson, has started a project to put books on every school bus in the Monroe school district. The goal is to promote literacy and provide students with the opportunity to read, while offering some entertainment for long bus rides and hopefully reducing behavior issues. The club piloted the project with one crate of books on one bus and, with Lamer's giving the green light, is now launching into phase two of the project to get books on the remaining 29 buses.
