2010 Summer Reading Club and Lunch Program finishing strong at the Driving Park Branch

Like other branches of the Columbus Metropolitan Library, the Driving Park Branch has worked hard to offer children, teens, and adults alike with unique activities and opportunities to earn prizes for reading through the Summer Reading Program. Quay Barnes, Customer Service Associate, and Brian Johnson, Homework Help Center Coordinator, have helped lead the effort along with two community interns, Brittany and Torre, to organize Summer Club activities and offer summer lunches to young people in the community.

Throughout June and July, Driving Park has offered activities in conjunction with the Columbus Museum of Art and the Columbus Zoo, among others, to provide interactive learning opportunities to the community. The library has also offered specific opportunities for teens, such as Team Gaming, to provide and promote access to their local library.

Though the Summer Reading Club’s schedule ends July 31st, Driving Park’s Summer Lunch Program continues through late August. The program has served as many as 40 children and teens on certain days to provide an appreciated community service. As always, the Friends of the Library are proud to help support the Summer Reading Club and Lunch Program across the Columbus Metropolitan Library system.
