Why the Free Meals Program could Attract Kids to Come to Library?

A novel with title Sabrina and Corina

I went to library yesterday, check a couple novel out for weekend reading. One of the novel is Sabrina and Corina.

The novel seems about family and life, specifically about Latina in Denver, Colorado.

The picture in the book is an eye catching. Even some people said the cover is not always revealing the content, but I always excited about seeing the cover.

I know, a visualize is very important in some part. The novel (cover) may be seen at above picture.

Then, when I stepped out from the library building I saw one sign at front door on the right side under a Southern Magnolia tree.

The sign is standing a little lower, the adults will be ignoring the sign. In my thought the sign must be for the kids. When the kids walk through they will read it.

Here is the sign:

The sign for kids

I remember when I met a young college professor brought three of her kids to the library for this event last year. She said they had never missed the meals.

She had four reasons to brought her kids for free summer meals in the library:
- Number one, her kids were picky eater.
- Number two, she was so busy to cook fresh and nutritious meals for kids everyday.
- Number three, the kids got used to library and enjoy reading books.
- Number four is about social life, her kids made new friends, talked each others, and played together with them.

Free summer meals for kids are for every kid with 1-18 years of age. This program is a part of Summer Food Service Program.

The program is one of projects administered by Food and Nutrition Service US Department of Agriculture (USDA) that serves in 9 location of libraries and public schools in Baton Rouge.

Meals service times on first come-first served basis while all foods last.

  5. Free summer meals and library sounds like a win win idea for kids and parents and even encouraging good reading habits in kids.

  12. What a fantastic program. I am sure being surrounded by books really encourages more reading by the children too.

  13. There are no such initiatives and programs in the libraries around here. They would be a good idea to imitate.

    Very good info, Evi. Thank you very much and hugs.

  17. I must admit I'm ambivalent about free things in general, and for promoting reading in particular.

  18. Thank you so much Evi!! I'm so happy that you liked my outfit with the "brilli brilli" shoes and the Levi's jeans! I love them too, they have a really nice color, they fit perfectly and they're sooo comfy ;) Happy week! Kss

  19. Creo que es un bues sistema para fomentar la lectura en los niños...cada vez se lee menos con la aparición de las nuevas tecnologías.

  27. this sounds interesting idea that can be appealing for kids who are getting away from traditional way of reading and spend more time with technology

    hope your novel don't disappoint you my friend :) i would admit i too feel compelled by cover first and then pick up and check if i buy the book or not

  29. I love reading books and even when I was a child I love to come to library to pick some of them and read.
    This action with free meal is so cool. I think thanks for this kind of action more kids will be visit library :-)

  30. Summer Food Program -this is really great idea, but I would change age of kids who can go there because kids 1 or 2 years old cannot read books :-)

    1. I saw mommy and their babies were sitting down around a fountain in the corner of building, I have no idea were they reading or babbling, lol.

  31. It's a really great idea. Although it's hard for me to believe that children aged 1-2 can read. It is impossible.

  36. I love this! Children will be fed, and the library encourages reading. One year old is rather young, but babies can still look at the picture books even though they can't read yet. Great post!

  37. I love going to the Library with my kids and I also noticed recently that my local library also has the Summer free meal program for kids; It is such a great idea and the kids would definitely benefit from it in a lot of ways.
