Down with boredom, up with spring

Airdrie Public Library (APL) programs will take a two-week break from April 14 to 28 as we prepare for spring programming.

Yes, spring, that glorious time of the year when our hearts are filled with expectation and anticipation of all things new.

And, of course, here at APL that means while the programs are on hiatus, you can be assured our programmers are busy sprouting new and exciting literacy engagements for our patrons.

But first, let me point out a parent and child sanity lifesaver we call Spring Break Boredom Busters.

Join us for three days of very cool programming for school-aged children aged eight to 12 and their parents or caregivers.

April 23 at 2:30 p.m., will see Calgary author Stephanie Hrehirchuk share from her children's books, which have delighted families across Canada.

April 24 will feature two Minecraft sessions, one at 2:30 and the other at 3:35 p.m. Please reserve a spot to participate.

Then, on April 25 from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m., drop-in for the ultimate boredom buster – big, big games. Games so big, you’ll never go back to those teeny, tiny board games.

After this fabulous break of busting boredom, spring programming will burst forth into full bloom at APL April 29.

All our regulars will be back, such as Sensory Storytime, Toddlertime, Travelling Tales and Tunes, along with a bunch of cool extras we think you’ll enjoy.

One program on Saturday mornings, for instance, will feature a super-powered 45-minutes called the League of Super Dads.

Super Dads is for fathers, grandads, uncles and other male caregivers and children newborn to five years old, and will consist of fun with your kids while exploring early literacy skills.

This program launches May 4, at 10:15 a.m. in tandem with Free Comic Book Day, and, you guessed it, we’re making superhero capes for the dads.

Please note, the library will be closed April 19, 21, and 22 for Easter.
