ERLANGER, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky library is working with school districts in its area to provide free lunches for young people this summer.
Kenton County Public Library branches in Covington, Erlanger and Independence will serve meals to any child younger than 18. WCPO-TV reports the library will also encourage the children to participate in summer reading programs to keep their minds busy during summer break.
The children’s services coordinator at the Erlanger branch, Lisa Tewes, says the library wants to make sure the children’s bodies and minds are being fed.
