Libraries in the Park

June 12 – August 4, 2017

During the summer months many children do not have access to the nutrition or academic resources needed to maintain the learning growth made during the school year. Libraries in the Park (LiP), along with other library summer programs that “follow the food,” aims to get books into the hands of youth and to provide STEM activities to those who often have challenges getting to library programs.
