Lunch at the Library - Wednesday 7 August

Lunch at the Library is back!

Every Wednesday in August, children can join in with family friendly activities and pick up a free CATERed lunch. 

Lunches will be given away to children at all Plymouth Libraries* and a Pop Up Library at Four Greens in Whitleigh. 

Most libraries will have up to 50 lunches to give away. These will be given out on a first come first served basis. Make sure you ask library staff for a ticket when you arrive. 

Lunch will be served between 12 noon and 2pm. 

All libraries will have craft activities and the Summer Reading Challenge from 10am to 4pm. Any regular Wednesday activities will continue as usual.
