DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky.— Meadow Lands Elementary School has kept learning “hopping” throughout the summer, hosting a variety of educational opportunities for students during the break.

The Leaping Lunch Library travels around the MLES district with a wi-fi enabled school bus, giving children an opportunity to connect to the internet for research and learning. The bus includes a library of books and reading materials available for the children to take home to keep literacy skills active during the summer.

The Leaping Lunch Library also partners with the DCPS Summer Feeding Program, serving free lunches to anyone age 18 or younger.

The Leaping Lunch Library will conclude its summer series on Tuesday, July 28. The anticipated schedule includes stops at Town and Country at approximately 10:30 a.m. and at the swimming pool area at Colony Estates around 11:30 a.m.
