March Break can be a stressful time for parents. With the kids home from school all week it can be hard to find ways to keep everyone happy and entertained. This March Break, parents can skip the cabin fever and head to the Collingwood Public Library instead. The library has assembled an exciting lineup of activities for a range of ages and interests. Events run from March 11th-15th free of charge and are available for kids ages 3-18.
“The library is the place to be for March Break,” says Ashley Kulchycki, Supervisor of Children and Teen Services, “we have an exciting lineup of programs, including old favourites like Library Mini-Golf and Coder’s Corner, and exciting new events such as Blanket Fort Bonanza and Breakfast Bingo. Teens will have fun with Maker’s Market workshops where they can create vinyl mugs with the Cricut or book spine bookmarks, ending with the Markers Market where teens will have the opportunity to sell their creations.”
While visiting the library for these fun events make sure to take time to check out the creativity of local children in “The Magic of Children in the Arts” exhibition on display throughout the library from March 5th until April 28th.
