Creative kids will love the library’s March Break activity kits, which contain five activities (one for each day of the week) that share a common theme of discovery. What will your children discover with a little help from their imagination?
Kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis beginning March 14 at 9:30 a.m. at the main branch and March 15 at 9:30 a.m. at the St. Paul branch. One kit is available per child.
The library also features the Become an Inventor video series designed to inspire creative minds in children. Tune into the library’s YouTube channel at 9:30 a.m. each weekday during spring break for a fresh new video challenge.
The library’s YouTube channel also has a selection of story times, STEAM challenges, and craft videos for kids that can be watched anytime.
Prepare early for March Break by stopping by the library and picking up books and coding kits. Kids can explore science, tech, and coding this March Break with the library’s collection of Makerspace items for loan. Kids can learn the basics of coding by checking out an Ozobot, Dash, Cubetto, and the library’s new Code-a-Pillar robot kit.
Plus, the library’s Snap Circuits kits make learning electronics easy and fun. Each kit contains all the parts and instructions to create a wide variety of projects. Just put the pieces together and start exploring.
Be sure to stop by the main branch and visit the new mural in the children’s and youth sector. It is a colorful and charming addition to the area that will appeal to the whole family. It even has a full size canoe that you can enjoy. Climb aboard and pretend you’re canoeing the Grand River.
The refreshed children’s and youth area also offers several toys and learning objects for families. Toys include a LEGO wall, giant Connect Four game and a train.
