TULSA — Summer vacation is in full swing, but some students aren't taking a break from reading.
A mobile library rolled through a neighborhood near Ellen Ochoa Elementary in Tulsa.
Two teachers who help lead the nonprofit "Gaining Ground," said they noticed students would regress in their reading skills during summer vacation. So they provide books for students to read during break.
"We decided that it was a problem we needed to fix," said teacher Kirby Mackenzie. "We started researching how to prevent the summer slide, and how to make sure our kids were coming back without losing that crucial, important growth school year to school year."
The nonprofit works with four schools in the area.
