Spring Break Activities for the Kids

We've got a spring mix of activities to help the kids welcome the season. On Monday, March 26th, spring in to the library between 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. for Spring-In Craft! Kids can use our cut-outs, pens, and other materials to design springtime greeting cards, plant a paper garden, craft a colorful collage and more.

On Wednesday, March 28th, 10:30 a.m. your kids will be Laughing with the Animals as naturalist and storyteller David Stokes uses live animals and puppets and to get the kids acting a bit like an animal themselves! This program is for families with children ages 4 and up.

We will also host two special storytimes, on Tuesday, March 27th at  4:15 p.m. and Thursday, March 29th 10:30 a.m. Kids ages 3 and up will enjoy stories and songs and special performer Jon B., with his guitar, will sing, strum and read books.

Finally, if you're a fan of Chat & Chew you'll want to attend our Chat & Chew Re-do on Wednesday, March 28th at 6:00 p.m. We'll revisit one of our favorite Chat & Chew books: The Case of the Lost Boy. Whether the kids have read this book before or it’s new to them, they will enjoy discussion and activities with other kids in grades 2 – 3. Children may attend on their own or invite a special adult to join them. Please contact the Children’s Department to register and get a copy of the book BEFORE the program. 

We hope to see you this spring break!
