It’s Spring Break, the kids are out of school, and parents are starting to look for activities to keep them entertained and busy (without breaking the bank of course). If that sounds like you, we invite you to take advantage of your library’s great lineup of activities for families to get involved in.
As always, all library activities are free to take advantage of, all you have to do is show up and have a good time. Below you’ll see a basic rundown of activities being hosted on a daily basis. For more information, feel free to visit our Events Calendar online.
