Reeves and Anderson Oakman settled on their elementary school's library floor with plates of hot dogs and chips.

Soon, the search would begin for the last few sports books that the brothers hadn't yet read.

Both activities were appealing, but what were they really looking forward to?

"To eat the most snacks we can," said Reeves, 9, Anderson, 7, agreed.

Summer break doesn't mean that students at Conway Elementary School, in southern Stafford County, must stop reading or eating with classroom pals.

The fifth year of the school's summer library hours started last week, giving kids the chance to pick out as many books as they want, eat snacks, visit with friends and play educational games on the computers and iPads.
