March Break: Tune in!


March Break is just around the corner! And we are offering fun, educational, and free programs in branches across the city for children ages 4 to 12 from March 12 to 16.

This year’s March Break theme is Tune in! The programs will spark children’s curiosity by inviting them to explore dance and music. They will have the opportunity to try the ukulele, learn a dance routine, experiment with sound, play horn rattles and much more!  

Parents can find the complete list of March Break programs here.

Registration is open. You can register your children for these programs starting now!
