March Break Boredom Busters

March break

March Break for students in Waterloo Region starts in just over a week. Luckily, we’ve got boredom-busting activities for everyone – from teens and tweens to younger kids and even infants – plus movies the whole family can enjoy!

Many of our events and programs are drop-in, while some require registration. But all of them are FREE, and no library card is required to attend. We’ve got a total of more than 50 programs across our five library locations. See the
full calendar, and start planning now.
