Mailman's plea pays off

Posted: Updated:

A postal carrier has delivered more than the mail to a Sandy, Utah boy.

Ron Lynch was delivering the mail when he spotted 12-year-old Mathew Flores fishing advertisements and newsletters out of a junk mail bin. The boy told the mail carrier that he was looking for something to read.

Reading, he says, is interesting. 

"Plus, it gets you smarter," he said.

Lynch started a conversation with the boy.  Mathew told the mail carrier that he reads the advertisements because he doesn't have books of his own and that bus fares made it difficult to get to the library.

If Mathew couldn't get to the library, Lynch decided to bring the library to him.
