BUSTI — The Hazeltine Public Library has added lunch to its summer reading program.

“The Hazeltine Public Library and the YMCA Jamestown have partnered to bring lunch to Busti on a limited basis, beginning July 10,” said Katie Smith, library manager. “In talking with John Barber from the YWCA we decided to run a pilot program, twice a week here in Busti. We will be an open site, meaning no reservations are needed, anyone under the age of 18 is welcome to join us on Tuesday and Thursdays from July 10 through Aug. 16. We will begin serving about 11:30 a.m. and finish shortly after noon. This will be a compliment to the summer reading program, encouraging kids to visit the library before or after lunch and discover their favorite author and story.”

The Summer Reading Program and the Summer Lunch Program are free and open to all young readers. For more details and specific guidelines, call the library at 487-1281 or visit the library at 891 Busti Sugar Grove Road.
