Has winter become un”bear”able for you and your family? Get a jump on the season and join us for a week of fun, shows, games and crafts at your local Library.
Mad Science will be enlivening your Tuesday afternoon, March 15th at the Community Centre Branch Library. They are also hosting Panda Mania story time, a cake decorating afternoon and an opportunity for every child to be an artist and some great craft projects.
Chippawa Branch Library is having both a Teddy Bear Clinic and a Twister contest. Do some beading, painting or sand art at the Stamford Centre Branch Library or enjoy some pyjama party fun and attend a Teddy Bear’s picnic. Naturally, all teddies are invited too.
Back by popular demand, all locations are hosting Sunstrums “Flowers for You” where children can learn the art of creating a beautiful bouquet, a “make and take” program for children 6 and up.
We have musical guest, Lenny Graf, an all age’s interactive concert for the whole family on Wednesday, March 16th at the Victoria Avenue Library.
We are also thrilled to present “Raptor Day” on Thursday, March 17th with our friends from Mountsberg educating us on birds of prey. An interactive “nose to beak” experience not to be missed.
The Victoria Avenue Library is offering “Grizzly Games”, an active hour of games and friendly competition. Niagara Woodcarvers are also offering their services again this year in a wood carving workshop. Lucky kids can join us for an all ages “Lucky Clover” family story time on Thursday, March 17th, don’t forget to wear a bit o’ green!
Our week ends with a free movie showing of our favourite bear from Jellystone Park, hey Boo-boo! on Friday March 19th. Bring pillows, blankets and snuggle in for the morning or afternoon.
Pick up a brochure at any of the 4 Library locations, or check out our website at www.nflibrary.ca Advance registration is required by phone or by person for all programs, and there is a small fee for most programs ranging from $1-$5. Stop hibernating, be smarter than the average bear and enjoy some March Break activities at your Library.
Monday March 7th is the next Philosopher’s Café. The topic of discussion is Competition & Competitiveness. Is a competitive nature innate or instilled? Are men or women more competitive? Join the discourse, at 7pm in the Rosberg Gallery. All are welcome.
