March Break @ MPL
We’re so excited to see you again! The library is open from 9:30am-6pm on Monday and Friday, 9:30am-8pm on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, and 9:30am-4pm on Saturday. Time and capacity limits are in place. Adults and children 2 years or older are required to wear a face mask if they’d like to browse or use computers in person. We’re also ready and waiting to provide curbside service, and happy to select books for you based on your reading preferences – there’s a form on our website or you can call 705-526-4216.
We’ve got something for everyone this March Break!
Join us for a virtual visit with Tasha Spillett-Summers, one of our favourite authors (I Sang You Down From the Stars, Surviving the City). She’ll talk with families with elementary school-age kids about her books and how her Cree and Trinidadian heritage informs her work on March 15 at 5pm. Email Kelsi, [email protected] to register.
Kids ages 4-8 can also register with Kelsi for a spring take & make kit available March 15 to make their own flowerpot creation, expressing their creativity and developing their fine motor skills! Or for a Science and Engineering Challenge kit with three exciting projects to try, released on Monday, March 14.
Maker kids ages 8-12 can try our Hacky Sack Take & Make kit available March 16, providing everything needed to create their own fun toy, and encouraging outside play. Email Melanie, [email protected], to register and to find out more about the MPL MakerPlace!
Try our fun painting project with Make a Mess studio, for kids ages 6-12 on Friday, March 18, at 2pm. Email Beverley, [email protected] to register for your kit and the virtual meetup!
Teens looking to explore their future options are invited to online meetups about telling stories through acting (Tuesday March 15 @ 2pm) or video games (Wednesday March 16 @ 5pm). Email [email protected] to register!
