On Monday, June 22 Athmar Park and Bear Valley Branch Libraries began to hand out breakfast and lunch to people in our community. Schlessman Family Branch Library will begin on Monday, July 20th.
This new and exciting opportunity partners both Athmar Park,Bear Valley and Schlessman Family Branch Library with Denver Public Schools to help keep our community fed through the summer. Though this is primarily for children up to 18 years-old we have the ability to offer breakfast and lunches to families in need. We are able to serve - not only children - but to all who stop by. This opportunity has enabled us to connect with customers we have missed during this closure due to COVID-19. Our staff here at the library are enjoying reconnecting with our community and seeing new faces as well. These healthy meals are available Monday through Friday until August 14th.
