Literacy Cafe

 McDowell County Schools will provide mobile library services for students Pre-K - 12th grade. The Literacy Cafe (formerly known as the Literacy Bus) will stop at various community locations, giving students the opportunity to check-out books free of charge, in both English and Spanish, throughout the months of July and the first week of August. Students may checkout two books weekly.

Did you notice the word “cafe” in Literacy Cafe? This year we are adding an additional feature to our services. If the Literacy Cafe stops in your area after 10:00 AM each day, any person 18 years of age and under, may receive lunch free of charge aboard the Literacy Cafe. Lunch service will begin the week of July 10th through August 3rd. Yes, that’s right! The Literacy Cafe has a mobile food service coming to a location near you (food service locations are bold). 
The Literacy Cafe will be on the road four days a week. Lunch will be served beginning the week of July 10th - August 3rd.

McDowell County Schools is looking forward to “Serving bodies and minds” of the children this summer.
