The end of winter is in sight – we just have to hold on a little longer – and with kids off on March break soon, the library is a great place to weather it out.
The Stouffville Library kicks off March Break week on Monday, March 16th with two editions of Mad Science. Water Works for the JK/SK crowd, and True North Science for grades 1-6. Each version has two sessions, so you can register for the one that works for your schedule.
The teens celebrate with their Robotics Club Showcase. Come and check out what they’ve created. For some quieter fun, the Chess Club is available for drop-in at 4 p.m.
On Tuesday, the kids will want to experience Zoo to You. The 10:15 a.m. session is for the little ones ages one to four, and at 11:30 a.m. the older kids get to know some special animals. An excellent way for kids to learn about some of the creatures we share this world with. Register now.
In the evening, there is a special Paint Night just for teens. It’s a fantastic way to explore art in a fun environment.
Wednesday kids five to 12 years of age, can register for Tim Holland’s zany puppet experience where he uses ventriloquism to liven things up. At 1 p.m., kids seven and up can register to make a craft. Let them get messy at the library and bring the finished creation home to you.
Thursday, register for the 10:15 a.m. entertainment of Team T&J for three to ten-year-olds. Drop-in movie time takes place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. and gives the kids a chance to chill with some friends.
Teens can register for the free Drama Radio program and work together to create their own radio show in the library’s recording studio.
