Holiday Break Activities for Kids

Posted by switham on

Join us for one or more of these programs during school vacation week!

Kids Tinker Bags  Wednesday, December 26  12pm – 9pm

Swing by the library and grab a Tinker Bag!  Filled with miscellaneous odds & ends, there is no limit to what you can create with these grab bags. Work at the library or take one home. Don’t forget to bring your imagination!

 

Family Movie Night: The Incredibles 2  Thursday, December 27  6:30-8:30 pm

Join us for our Family Movie Night!

In INCREDIBLES 2, Helen is called on to lead a campaign to bring Supers back, while Bob navigates the day-to-day heroics of “normal” life at home with Violet, Dash and baby Jack-Jack — whose superpowers are about to be discovered. Their mission is derailed, however, when a new villain emerges with a brilliant and dangerous plot that threatens everything. But the Parrs don’t shy away from a challenge, especially with Frozone by their side. That’s what makes this family so INCREDIBLE. Rated PG.

 

LEGO Free Play  Friday, December 28  10am – 2pm

All ages are welcome to stop in the Library and build with our large supply of Lego bricks! We will also have the Duplo bricks available for our younger builders. What can you build today?

 

New Year’s Eve at Noon Party   Monday, December 31  11:30 am – 12:00 pm

Can’t stay awake long enough to watch the ball drop? Ring in 2019 with your friends at the Library! We’ll have music, bubbles, and a special countdown at noon! For children of all ages and their families.
