Lunchbox Survival Techniques on
Display at Capitol Hill Library

The known universe abounds with mysteries.  If the Big Bang theory is correct, did it occur in the morning or the afternoon?  Do socks disappear from the dryer or do single socks appear there?  And just what is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

But the greatest mystery of all may be – what is mystery meat made of?

You may not learn what its contents are, but you can learn how to avoid it if you drop by the Capitol Hill Library, 334 S.W. 26th Street, on Wednesday, August 25, from 4:00 to 5:00p.m. for the latest edition of the Back to School Survival Series, “Lunchbox Survival.”

“What we want to do,” said librarian Jennifer Jones, “is show school-age kids and teens how to make their own lunch to take to school.  You can control the nutrition value of what you fix for yourself, and just as importantly you can control the taste.  You don’t have to be at the mercy of mystery meat when you plan and prepare your own lunch.”

“Lunchbox Survival” is free.  Call 634-6308 with questions, or come by the information desk.

“And don’t forget,” Jones added, “that you can also visit the MLS website, www.metrolibrary.org.”
