Every Week:

StoryTime (Fridays, 10ish):

Bring your toddler or preschooler (ages 5 & under) to the library for StoryTime Friday mornings at 10:00(ish). Our drop-in StoryTime is a great way to develop your child’s early literacy and group interaction skills in a fun and relaxed setting. StoryTime encourages key skills that will help your child become a successful reader – through stories related to a theme, songs, rhymes & rhythm instruments, and a simple craft. New StoryTimers are always welcome!

LEGO Club (Saturdays, 10 – 12 noon):

Our drop-in LEGO Club (for ages 4 & up) continues on Saturday mornings between 10 and noon.

Museum Passes:

A museum visit is a great March Break family activity! The library lends free family passes to several Ottawa museums & the Aquatarium. Or try a MAPsack for an outdoor family adventure and family park pass. Contact the library for more info.
