Cannon Library will NOT be a meal site this year. Instead, the DA school district will be providing breakfast and lunch meals Monday through Friday, with pickups on Monday and Wednesday. The district will be considered an open site, so anyone who came to the library for lunch last year can come to the school. If you would like to pick up meals for your children, please let program director Christine Miller know in advance so that she can plan accordingly. If you have any questions or would like to arrange breakfast or lunch pickup, you can email Ms. Miller at
