In-Line-Web-Graphic-Kids-Cafe.pngKids Café — Free afterschool meals for students

We know it's hard to focus on learning when your stomach is empty. That's why we collaborate with the Greater Cleveland Food Bank to provide children with free grab-and-go meals during the school year in communities where the need is great at select branch locations. Grab-and-go meals are available while supplies last at nine Cuyahoga County Public Library branches. 



We appreciate your support

These and other library resources for students are made possible in part through the generosity of individuals like you. We hope you'll consider making a donation in support of our work to ensure every student has access to the out-of-school-time resources they need to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
