Nutritious Meals After School at the Library for Kids & Teens
Children from toddlers through age 18 can enjoy nutritious meals at the library, during this last week of summer break, with Meet Up & Eat Up program. When school starts on August 9, this meal program switches to Kids Café, and continues to provide healthy after school meals for toddlers through age 18. Kids Café ensures that children without access to regular nutrition receive a healthy meal every day after school. All food is provided by Three Square, and may be eaten in the Youth Services area of the library or taken to go. Stay tuned for details on participating library locations or call your neighborhood branch for details.

Please take a brief survey HERE and provide your input on the memorial’s artistic, design and educational features. Also, please consider sharing this survey with your friends and anyone who has an interest in this matter (before August 15th, the last day this survey is available).
