For the past several weeks, a group of students at Lebanon Elementary School have participated in the school’s Lunch Bunch Book Club, which meets in the school’s library each Friday.

Twenty-one fourth graders signed up for the book club, which was organized by LES librarian Ellen McFall with the help of the Marion County Public Library.

“The whole purpose of Lunch Bunch reading club is to foster a love of reading,” McFall said. “The students get excited about reading the book and they share that with another student, a teacher, someone outside of the school, and somebody else wants to pick up that book and read it because it sounds interesting.”
