Who needs beaches?

March Break is looking pretty exciting from here. Libraries have so many great programs planned, how will you decide which ones to go to? Many will fill quickly, so if you see something that appeals, register!

We are offering drawing workshops and advice with Mark Oakley in Bridgetown on March 13, and in Annapolis Royal on March 14. Local guitarist Caleb Miles will be teaching guitar workshops in Kentville on March 13 and Wolfville on March 15. Actor John Dunsworth (have any of you ever seen Trailer Park Boys?) will be doing a workshop in Bridgetown, and later in the week, you can learn to write plays.  If crafts are more your style, try making a Sock Monkey in Kentville or jewelry in Kingston, or perhaps a yarn pom-pom in Annapolis Royal.  Maybe you’d rather decorate a cupcake in Wolfville?  Or attend an art workshop in Berwick? 

We’ll be showing the movie HUGO in Bridgetown (March 6) and in Berwick on March 16.  And celebrating another great book, we are hosting a Hunger Games Party in Kentville on March 18. Bring your friends and see who is the last standing in our Cornucopia Challenges.  This program is going to be so much  fun, and there will be cupcakes! 

If you enjoy looking at the stars, head over to Annapolis Royal on March 14. Keji interpreter Colleen Anderson will be pointing out some cool stuff! Speaking of science, did you know that Mad Science will be in town on March 16? Find them at the Windsor and Wolfville branches.
Girls can have tons of fun at GirlPower in Middleton and Berwick. Ages 12-18 are invited to play x-Box Kinect at the Teen Lounge in Lawrencetown. There’s a Sleepover at the library in Bridgetown, a Magic Show in Kentville, board games in Port Williams, and lots of storytimes to choose from. There are computer classes and games all week long, and there’s a treasure hunt, too. 

Did we mention that all of these programs are FREE for you to attend? Many of our programs have been made possible by sponsors and grants, and we really appreciate that!   For a link to a printable flyer with all these activities, click here, or ask for a copy at your local library. See you during March Break.
