Kids - Spring Break - RPL

It's Spring Break time again!  A week off of school.  Hip, Hip, Hooray!

That sentiment might last the weekend, but then by Monday you'll probably be hearing, "I'm bored!"  Parents will be thinking, "What can we do that isn't going to cost us a lot of money?"  Well, RPL has an answer for you - come join us for some fun activities at the library!  The best part is that it won't cost you a dime!

On Monday, we are offering a great science show from the Mad Science Team.  It's entitled "Fire and registration is required. 
Ice."  Have you ever seen paper being burned but leaving no ash?  How about levitating a beach ball without using your hands?  Volunteers will be asked to join in on the demonstrations of spectacular chemical reactions and cool special effects.  The show starts at 1 PM and

Tuesday brings about Grandparents Got Game or as we fondly call it - GGG.  Bring a grandparent or a special adult to GGG for some fun spring time activities, snacks and games.  The fun happens from 1:30 until 3 PM.  Drop on by!

Brick by Brick happens on Wednesday upstairs in the Youth Services story time room.  Create magnificent designs with our mounds of Legos from 12-2 PM.  Then leave your masterpiece to be displayed in Youth Services for all eyes to admire.

On Thursday it's Make-and-Take Day!  Come join us to make Moon Sand.  It's a fun, sensory dough that you can make and use your own creativity to mold it into almost anything.  And it's yours to take home to keep! 

Not sure what to do on Friday?  Don't forget that RPL offers the Museum Adventure Pass.  Take your family to the Brookfield Zoo, Legoland, Illinois Train Museum or Chicago Botanic Gardens.  These are just a few of the places the museum pass will let you in for free or a reduced rate.  Hurry in to get these passes.  There is a limited amount that can go out each week.   You can always call to see if they are available but passes cannot be held, you must come into the library to request them.
