Everybody Wins Power Lunch

This post is a bit late in coming but it is no less due. The Library would like to congratulate our own Carol Edwards for collaborating with Abram Lansing School and the Literacy Volunteers of Rensselaer County, and implementing the Everybody Wins Power Lunch.

The Everybody Wins Power Lunch program pairs an adult reading mentor with an elementary student during the student’s lunch hour a for an hour reading. The program lasts the duration of the school year and incurs no cost to the school, student, or mentor.

This program benefits the students by expanding their reading and language skills as well as well as matching them to a caring adult who commits to read to them every week during the school year.

The Everybody Wins Power Lunch program is looking for reading volunteers to line up for next school year. Please contact Carol Edwards at 235-2570 ( if you are interested in being a reading mentor for the forthcoming school year.
