Kawartha Lakes Public Library is excited to offer spring break events and activities that will keep families busy and engaged all week long.
With children off school the week of April 12–16, the Kawartha Lakes Public Library is offering amazing programs for families and children of all ages, says a media release.
For instance, check out their latest storywalks. This program pairs literacy with physical activity – all while encouraging families to get outside. There are nine storywalks set up in parks around the city for spring break. To find a storywalk near you, just visit www.kawarthalakeslibrary.ca/storywalks.
A special spring break take home pack will be available at all library branches, while supplies last. The pack includes a craft, local history colouring pages, a grain seed growing kit, a Kawartha Lakes Public Library board game, and more. These are FREE and are available on a first come, first serve basis – beginning the week of April 5.
While you’re at the library, why not grab some books for the family! Not sure what to check out? Just ask for a pre-made book bundle.
The library continues to add new weekly virtual programs. Enjoy storytimes, craft videos, Lego challenges and more. Find these at www.kawarthalakeslibrary.ca/virtualprograms.
“All of these activities are designed for families to enjoy the week together in a safe and fun way” says Lyndsay Bowen, library specialist for outreach and community engagement. “This was a team effort – we’ve partnered with various departments in the City of Kawartha Lakes, Ken Reid Conservation Area, Settlers’ Village, as well as the Grain Farmers of Ontario to make these Spring Break activities happen.”
Many more services are available through the library as well, such as digital resources and Full STEAM Ahead items. Visit www.kawarthalakeslibrary.ca for more information.
