The Lebanon Police Department has partnered with the Lebanon Public Libraries to enable Lebanon Officers to read to children and young adults while they are out of school. The program is being called “Storytime with Justice,” and is available on the department’s social media and website.
Officers sit down with Justice, the department’s mascot, and read a book. All the books have been chosen by the Children’s Librarian from the Lebanon Library. There is a book read for the K-2 crowd which is meant to be read completely on that day. A second video will have a book chosen for the 3-6 graders and during each video, a new chapter of the book will be read.
The department plans to add new segments each week.
