Lexington Library sets summer 2021 activities, LexTran free bus fares deal

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Lexington Public Library will provide a self-guided summer activity booklet for children of all ages.

The booklet provides 9 weekly themes with art, experiments, reading suggestions, and games and is designed for families to complete at their own pace together.

Activity booklets will be available for pickup at any of the six Lexington Public Library locations, downloadable at www.lexpublib.org, and through the Fayette County Public Schools’ Summer Ignite programs.

A limited number of free supply bags will be available for pickup on Saturday, May 22 from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at all Library locations.

The supply bags are offered on a first-come, first-served basis while supplies last with a limit of one supply bag per household.  The supply bags cannot be reserved in advance, and an adult must be present to receive the kit.

The supply bags are intended for families whose participation would be limited by the financial inability to purchase the supplies needed for the activities.

To ensure students have easy access to community resources this summer, LexTran is partnering with the Lexington Public Library to provide free bus fare to all Fayette County Public School students when they show their Student Success Library Card.

Students must have the physical card with them to receive free ridership.  To obtain a replacement card, please visit any of the six library branches.  Free LexTran fares for students will run from Wednesday, May 19 through Tuesday, August 10.

“We know that this past year has been difficult for everyone, especially our young learners.  Our summer activities are designed to be FUN, and we hope that families can enjoy them together,” said Executive Director Heather Dieffenbach.  “We are delighted that LexTran shares our vision and will help our students get out to experience all that Lexington has to offer this summer.”
