Community Invited to Summertime Lunch-and-Library

The Catawba County Library, in partnership with the Backpack Program and the Community Kitchen of The Corner Table, will provide weekly lunch-and-library sessions at 111 Herman Sipe Road in Conover, near Oak Grove Mobile Home Park. The Library to Go will offer books and resources as you enjoy a free, hot meal on-site. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The series of summertime lunch-and-library sessions will be available every Wednesday from June 14 through August 16. Lunch will be served between 11 am and 12 noon, and the Library to Go will be set up for browsing between 11 am and 12:30 pm. Stop by early to check out all the library resources on display and power up your brain as well as your body.

The Library to Go offers:
⦁ A specialized librarian to offer assistance with technology, job applications and resume building, reader’s advisory, and other resources
⦁ Books for all ages
⦁ Playaway audio and book kits
⦁ Downloading free Libby and Hoopla ebooks, audio, music, and movies
⦁ Internet access
⦁ Storytime
⦁ STEAM programs

This partnership will also continue to provide food to bridge the gap during the summer months when school is out and families don’t have access to food bags from the Backpack Program. Food bags will be available to all for pick up at all library locations.
