Raleigh apartment complex no longer banning bookmobile project


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – The management of a Raleigh apartment complex has reversed its ban of an elementary school project that featured volunteers reading to children.

Multiple media outlets report that the apartment announced Monday that volunteers with the Lacy Elementary School bookmobile will be allowed to return to the Grand Arbor Reserve complex in west Raleigh, effective immediately.

The bookmobile was banned last month by apartment officials who cited a company policy that forbids events not sponsored by the corporate owner.

School officials say the bookmobile gives students a chance to read in a group and to borrow books for a week at a time.

In a statement, apartment officials said they will collect documentation that shows volunteers have been properly screened prior to the weekly event taking place.
