San Pablo Library at 13751 San Pablo Ave.

The Contra Costa County Library announced Monday it will serve free lunches to youth ages 18 and under at nine library locations this summer.

County Librarian Melinda Cervantes said the Lunch at the Library program helps kids from low-income families have access to nutritious meals “even when school is out of session.”

The program is a collaboration with California Library Association (CLA) and the California Summer Meal Coalition bringing summer meal providers to libraries.

“In addition to lunch, the libraries will offer a variety of free programs including board games, arts and crafts, musical performances, Legos, movies, and more,” the county said.
