The Perth and District Union Public Library will be offering many fun activities during the upcoming April school break.
The library is excited to partner with the Town of Perth and Tay Valley Township to launch their first Word Walk. First launched at North Grenville Public Library, participants visit the Word Walk and use the words to create their own poem, sentence, or short story. Community members of all ages are invited to pick up a notebook and pencil at the library starting Monday, April 12th, and then walk or drive to the Last Duel Park in Perth or the playground in Maberly. Participants can search for words that have been placed in both areas. Write down the words you find and submit a poem, sentence or short story using the words you have collected. Submit your completed works to the library by April 23. April is National Poetry Month, so let the creative energy flow. There will be prizes for children, teens, and adults!
The library will also be hosting a virtual Bingo Party! Play along with Heidi Taber, the Children and Teen Services Specialist, on Tuesday, April 13th at 1pm, through Facebook Live. Bingo cards will be available for pick-up at the library and there will be small prizes for the winners.
The library’s ever popular Take and Make Kits will be tripled for the week. Three unique kits will launch Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The kits will be available for pick-up at the front desk or through curbside.
Finally, the library is excited to host a brand new virtual workshop with Scientists in Schools on Friday, April 16th at 1pm. Space is limited for this workshop, so please email or call the library to reserve your spot. You can email the library at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 613-267-1224.
