Exciting March Break programs at the library

March 9, 2018

Oakville Public Library (OPL) is set to kick off its line-up of March Break programs next week. The library has a long list of programs scheduled to run each day of the week, starting on Mar. 12 and running through to Mar. 18.

March Break is an exciting time for OPL as it marks the beginning of the library’s spring and summer calendar of programs.

While a few of the activities fall under the library’s regular programming – such as family storytime and family movie day – there are many other new and exciting options for your family to attend this year.

The week starts with a special magic show by Bumbling Bert, as well as a workshop on how to create a garden ornament, an intriguing spy-science training class, and a fun storytelling activity.

The week continues with a handful of engaging art-making programs, including a puppet-making workshop, a flowerpot design activity, painting with vegetables, and a session on creating a tissue paper bouquet.

OPL will also be running a couple of Mad Science programs with educational science experiments for kids, and a Fun with Plants session where your children will learn interesting facts about plants from a Royal Botanical Gardens guest.

Most of the library’s March Break programming requires registration. Interested participants are encouraged to visit OPL’s website or browse through the Spring/Summer guide to get more information about available programs, and to register early before the programs fill up.

For the adults who would also like to take advantage of the short break, author Tom Rachman will be at the Queen Elizabeth Park Community & Cultural Centre on Mar. 18 to discuss his upcoming novel, The Italian Teacher. Tickets for the event are $20 each and can be purchased at any OPL branch.
