Lexington summer reading program underway

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Some Lexington children received a special delivery today to help make their summer more fun.

Parents and teachers from the Booker T Washington Intermediate Academy handed out books in the neighborhood around the school tonight.

It's all part of the, "Beep, Beep Summer Reading Program."

Parents and teachers loaded up the books in red wagons, then went door to door.

They say it's important for children to keep reading all summer.

"You know, sometimes kids may not be able to go to the library, so we're going to bring the library to them. When they're in school, they go to the library once a week. So we don't want them to lose that love, so they're going to be able to get a new book each week, like they would at school," says Wendy Avila/, the Booker T. Washington Principal.

Parents and teachers will continue handing out books every Monday through the end of July.
