March Break is already here. But don’t worry, you can still choose among programs at the local library, swimming pool, ice rink, ski hill or a large selection of creative classes for all ages.

Local Library

Take for instance the Bethany Library at 1474 Highway 7A.

On Saturday you can take part in the Super Saturday Board Games event at the Bethany Library from 11:15 to 12:15.

No matter where you live in Kawartha Lakes, there is a something going on at your local library. Check out the list of March Break events at http://www.city.kawarthalakes.on.ca/news/march-break-activities-in-kawartha-lakes.

If you have not been to your local library lately, you might be surprised at the wide range of offerings available! For instance, while your kids are busy you can borrow the books that have made it to the CBC Canada Reads Short List. The next edition of Canada Reads takes place March 27 to 30, 2017.

You or your kids might also be interested in downloading e-books, digital music, magazines…or you can take online courses for FREE! March Break might be just the time to see what the library is offering all year long.
