Schools out for summer shouldn't mean stop learning.
Library visits can enrich your summer. From baby, toddler, pre-school and family story time sessions to good old fashion reading of books, newspapers and periodicals, to exploring the world via computer, there is something for everyone. And you can even check out a movie for free to take home and watch, along with books.
You can broaden your mind by exploring the arts and entertainment offerings in the region. There are many free options, from the Waterfront Wednesday concert series in downtown Louisville the last Wednesday of every month, to multiple free offerings each Friday evening in many places, including the Westport Village Summer Concert series, Jeffersonville Main Street Concerts in the Park and Fourth Street Live! Hot Country Nights concerts.
Louisville is home to the oldest free Shakespeare Festival in the United States. Twelfth Night will be performed every night but Monday in Central Park from June 20 through July 14. There are also free shows at Actors Theatre.
There are many free museums in the region, like the Carnegie Center for Art and History in New Albany, Jeffersontown Historical Museum, and Louisville Nature Center.
Of course, there are numerous fairs and festivals leading up to the St. James Court Art Show the first week of October.
And it won't cost a dime to ditch the ear plugs and do what might be the most beneficial summer fun activity: taking time to get to know family members, neighbors, relatives and friends a little better by simply having conversations with them!
