JCPS providing meals to children amid COVID-1 coronavirus crisis

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Jefferson County Public School students are able to get free books thanks to several Louisville organizations.

The Louisville Free Public Library (LFPL), Louisville Metro Housing and JCPS gave out the first round of free books Friday.

Students will be able to get free books again Monday at the Parkland Boys and Girls Club on Greenwood Avenue and the 500 building on South Eighth Street.

The free books were made possible through Louisville Metro Housing's Book Rich Environments Program, which provides over 14,000 brand new books to under-served children up to age 18 through a partnership with LFPL, Friends of the Library and other local literacy partners.
