Summer Lunch program at Public Library begins June 6

One of the most important pieces of the Summer Learning Program at the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County is Summer Lunches. This summer the Main Library, and 14 branches, are serving free lunch to anyone age 18 and younger who needs a meal. This program is made possible with the help of Cincinnati Public Schools and Whole Again International.

Lunch is served starting Monday, June 6, and continues every weekday through Friday, Aug. 12. (No lunch is served July 4). Times vary by branch but generally fall between noon and 1 p.m. Please arrive 15 minutes early. Food is served while supplies last.
