It feels like it’s been spring for weeks now – but you know it really and truly is spring when Spring Break arrives! We’ve got some free and exciting Spring Break events for kids planned this year.

First off, we’ll be having two Legolands – on March 20 and March 27 from 2 – 3:30 pm. And on Thursday, March 26 from 2 – 3:30 we’ll be having a T-Shirt Make & Take – an opportunity for you to come in and decorate a t-shirt to take home (bring your own, or have one of ours). Kids of all ages are welcome to these activities, but children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult.


The not-for-profit Advocacy Centre will be at the library on Thursday, March 12 at 6:30 pm, to deliver a workshop on debt. They‘ll talk about legal issues related to credit/debt; options for when debts become a problem; credit reporting; and resources that are available.  

Fabulous Friday

Come to the library on Friday, March 13 from 2:00 to 3:30 for a fun-filled Fabulous Friday – we’ve got crafts, board games, chess, and lots more! All ages welcome.
