March Program Highlights

This month at the Burncoat Branch, join us for a St. Patrick’s Day Party for Wee Lads and Lassies on Saturday, March 17 at 3:30 p.m. A light heart lives longest, so the Irish say… so we’re having a party to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! Join us for an extra special storytime complete with a lesson on leprechaun folklore, a holiday craft, and a gold hunt! Then, try some shamrock-inspired snacks and collect your St. Paddy’s party favors. Mischief makers are encouraged to wear green. For children ages 3-6 and their families.

You also won’t want to miss our Egg Hunt on Wednesday, March 21 at 3:30 p.m. Hop on over for a spring egg hunt! Ages 12 and under. Participants must check-in and receive the “rules” and an egg hunt bag. Please arrive early, as space and supplies are limited. Hunts begin promptly at the listed times.

We’ll also have Construction Club, Game On, and Make and Take.
