Meals-on- Wheels and libraries partner for new program


Country Neighbor and Community Action are partnering with Clevnet libraries for value-added service to residents of Ashtabula and northern Trumbull Counties. 
Drivers of meal delivery routes are carrying large “Lunch and Library” bags of books, movies and books-on-tape or CDs to their regular customers. Eligible participants need only fill in a short form to request the library materials they enjoy. Lunch and Library bags are delivered with the meals, returned to the libraries, and refilled.
Regular homebound services are available also from all the Clevnet and other libraries as all are eager to serve their patrons. 
The Meals-on-Wheels delivery is an additional value-added and cost-effective service achieved by partnering and collaboration.
Participating libraries are Kinsman Public Library, Bristol Public Library, Andover Public Library, Kingsville Public Library, Henderson Memorial Public Library in Jefferson, Harbor Topky Public Library, Conneaut Public Library and Rock Creek Public Library. 
Every Country Neighbor or Community Action customer is eligible to fill in the request form and join the program. If the customer does not have a current Library Card the nearest library will make one available. The Library cards also make all E-Books and other Clevnet online offerings available for download.
Barb Wagner said she “loves having the books brought right to me, especially audio books.”  
She has a best friend in her building who gets home delivered meals as well, but doesn't take advantage of the Lunch 'N Library Program.  
All of the participating libraries are proud to partner with Country Neighbor and Community Action to make a value-added service to our community. Whether you download CLEVNET E-Media or receive movies and physical books each month, there are over 10 million items available to our library users.
