Any family with young children who has stopped into the Burford Branch has undoubtedly met Miss Rachel – one of the amazing library assistants who doles out enthusiasm and passion alongside great books. Her smiling face and sense of humour are well known in the community, but did you know she’s a certified teacher too? That means her March Break programs sneak in a whole lot learning along with the fun!

When asked about this year’s March Break programs, Rachel revealed, “I’m most excited about the program called ‘All Hands on Tech.’ This year we’re going to work with a Bee-Bot and map the Bee-Bot travel…kids will get an introduction to coding that will challenge their creativity! I love it because I always learn something as the kids love to share their tech knowledge with me too!”

March Break programs at the County of Brant Public Library run from Monday, March 11 to Saturday, March 16. You can check out the entire list of 20+ programs at our website www.brantlibrary.ca – some programs require registration, some are drop-in, and there’s stuff for kids whether they’re still “littles” or they’re already too-cool-for-school! Don’t miss out…sign up today at your nearest branch!
