Gainesville Knowledge Connection returns Monday

By AccessWDUN staff

For the seventh consecutive year, Gainesville Connection is partnering with Gainesville City Schools and the Hall County Library System, and for the third year in a row, with the Gainesville Kiwanis Club, to host the Gainesville Knowledge Connection Program.

The summer program encourages K-12 students to continue their summer learning by using the scheduled bus service to access the local library, parks and recreation facilities, art programs, youth clubs, museums and other summer enrichment programs without charge.  Free rides will be available to K-12 students starting Monday and continuing through August 31.

Here’s how the program works…

•             All Gainesville City Schools K-12 students will receive a copy of the Gainesville Knowledge Connection flyer from their school administrators.

•             When a student boards the bus for the first time, they will need to show the flyer to the driver who will then help the student make the bus connection to the Hall County Library located on Main Street.

•             When they arrive at the library they will give the flyer to the clerk who will place a Gainesville Knowledge Connection sticker on the student’s library card. Now, the student can ride the Gainesville Connection free of charge all summer.  While this program is designed to encourage students to use their free pass to take trips to the library, they can travel free of charge anywhere within the system using the pass.

Community Service Center Department Director, Phillippa Lewis Moss, whose department operates the bus system, said she can’t think of a better use for public transportation. “The Gainesville Knowledge Connection is a perfect vehicle for ensuring that our kids can access all the wonderful resources our community has to offer.”
