MLES Leaping Lunch Library to Provide Summer Support for Students

dcps1 300DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (6/5/14) — Meadow Lands Elementary School is sponsoring a Leaping Lunch Library for students this summer to provide an opportunity for children to check out books and reading materials while also enjoying a nutritious lunch and the opportunity to connect to the Internet for research and learning.

The Daviess County Public Schools district will provide a Wi-Fi enabled school bus, which will travel a route to include neighborhoods in the Colony Estates and Town and Country mobile home park areas.

Teresa Howard, a fourth-grade teacher at MLES, said the goal is to encourage children to maintain reading skills over the summer break. “Read aloud” story times are planned as part of the mobile library visits.

The Leaping Lunch Library is also partnering with the DCPS Summer Feeding Program and will serve free lunches to anyone age 18 or younger at these sites.

The mobile library is accepting donations of books from the community which children may check out to read. Take books addressed to MLES Leaping Lunch Library to the DCPS Central Office at 1622 Southeastern Parkway or to Meadow Lands Elementary School at 3500 Hayden Road between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

The Leaping Lunch Library bus will travel every other Tuesday June 17, July 1, July 15 and July 29. Anticipated schedule includes stops at the swimming pool area at Colony Estates 11 a.m. and Town and Country 12 p.m. on those dates.

For more information, parents may call Meadow Lands Elementary School at (270) 852-7450.
