Lunch at the Library

Our library service is joining up with CATERed and its Big Summer Food Tour again this summer for Lunch at the Library. Every Wednesday in August children can pick up a free lunch and join in with family friendly activities.

This year lunch will be provided at all libraries and a pop-up library in Whitleigh. Activities will take place between 10am and 4pm, including the Summer Reading Challenge, films, crafts and coding workshops. There will also be some special guests including the National Marine Aquarium, Plymouth Music Zone, Cats Protection League, Cosmic and Positive People, Above Bounds Theatre, Devon and Cornwall Police, Paper Nations and more.

Deputy Council Leader Pete Smith said: “Lunch at the Library was very successful last year and we’re looking forward to feeding minds and tummies again this summer. Holiday Hunger is a real problem for many families in Plymouth. By joining in with CATERed’s Big Summer Food Tour we can help those who may struggle to provide food and entertainment for children over the holiday. We hope the great line up of activities will encourage children and families to visit their local library so they can see what’s on offer all year round.”

Lunches will be given out between 12 noon and 2pm on a first come first served basis. For more information about Lunch at the Library and details of activities visit
