The Mobile Area Resource Centre (MARC Van) is a small mobile library. It visits 5 schools in the local area. The base school is Skipton Primary School, but the van also visits Cape Clear, Linton, Lismore and Rokewood Primary Schools. The MARC van is filled with picture story books, fictional novels, and non-fiction books for students and teachers to borrow. MARC lessons allow students to share books, discuss different aspects of the books, think critically and explore issues in greater details with an activity that is appropriate. MARC Vans have been operating since the 1970’s. There are around 35 MARC Vans in Victoria. MARC Vans are a part of the Department of Education and were introduced to service Rural Schools with less than 120 students to provide the opportunity to borrow books from a Library Service.
