Lunch at the Library

    CATERed and PCC Library Service have joined forces 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.

    Lunch at the Libraries aims to engage with residents and encourage use of their local libraries, provide free fun activities for children & young people, support literacy with the Summer Reading Challenge and also provide a lunch.

    Last year, this happened at 3 libraries but this year, the library team wanted to extend this to all 12 library sites across the city. 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.

    Lunches will be given out between 12 noon and 2pm on a first come first served basis. Once they're gone, they're gone!
