This is from Littlewood Elementary School in Gainesville, Florida. Three of my grandkids attend school there. The media center is open 5 nights during June and July and kids can check out and return books. I love this idea!
This is not the only school in the country to do this. School libraries and media centers sit unused during summer vacation and many kids have few resources for reading materials. Kids need books, libraries have books, sounds like a match made in heaven to me. Some library nights are funded by the district and some by the school's PTA.
