Partnership program offered at 15 library locations this summer

COLUMBUS—Columbus Metropolitan Library (CML) has once again partnered with Columbus Recreation & Parks Department to provide students with free lunches and snacks at 15 CML locations.

This year, due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, lunches will be distributed as grab & go meals for kids to take home.

This marks the 20th year CML has offered Summer Lunch.

“So many children in our community rely on free or discounted school lunches,” says CML Public Services Director Kathy Shahbodaghi. “It is absolutely critical that students have access to healthy, nourishing lunches and snacks. It not only benefits the body, but the mind as well.”

Columbus Metropolitan Library has served the people of Franklin County, Ohio since 1873. With its Main Library and 22 branches, CML is well known for signature services and programs like School Help, Reading Buddies, Summer Reading Challenge and Ready for Kindergarten. The library’s Strategic Plan supports the vision of “a thriving community where wisdom prevails,” which positions CML to respond to areas of urgent need: kids unprepared for kindergarten, third grade reading proficiency, high school graduation, college and career readiness and employment resources.
