March Break at the library!

You may not be heading south to warm sand and beaches. That's ok, because you can have a whole lot of fun right here in the Valley! And thanks to your local library, you can have that fun for free! Our libraries have put together a great line up of programs and activities for all ages during this March Break.

For instance... we are bringing in Mad Science from Halifax to amaze and astound. We've had them in before, and let me tell you, I never thought I'd see a butane fire in the library  and not be alarmed! They are very entertaining and your kids, ages 5 -12, will learn something, too. They will be here on Wednesday, March 13, at the Middleton, Wolfville, and Hantsport libraries. Registration is required because space is limited. Click here to sign up at the library closest to you (or the one that has spaces left!)

Perhaps your teenager is moaning about nothing to do. Nip that in the bud by sending them over to the Bridgetown, Berwick, or Lawrencetown Library to learn West African Drumming with Kadijah. Or drop them off in Kingston on Tuesday for some Duct Tape Crafts. They can learn to draw with Mark Oakley, play board games,  create a zine, or learn web design. Click here for these and other great activities!

We've got plenty of other things lined up, too. Build with LEGO in Berwick, Bridgetown, Lawrencetown, Kentville, and Windsor. Have some Wimpy Kid fun in Kingston. Port Williams has craft days, as do Annapolis Royal, Berwick, Middleton, and Kentville. There are free computer workshops, too. So, if you hear this refrain "There's nothing to do!", just check out our website, and get them over to the library for some excellent March Break fun!

Of course, you could always read a few books this week, too. Or try an audio for a long car trip. Borrow a new game for Wii or xBox. We've got this March Break thing covered.
