If you are staying in town for spring break, your kids might start to get a little bored if they are around the house all day. But, taking them out and about to explore can start to add up! The Louisville Free Public Library offers a variety of options for families with kids of all ages and their events are FREE.

Free spring break activities include: Learn how to fly a drone, hone your sewing and Lego skills, or just drop in for crafts and reading.  Kids can enjoy storytime, chill out with a movie, take in a puppet show, join a dance party, and win Book Bingo. Teenagers can participate in a Fortnite tournament, prepare for the ACT, talk anime, and meet other teens in a safe space. Families are invited to play together as Game Day takes over Bon Air Library with board, card, video, and yard games. All are welcome to spend some time at LFPL during spring break!

Find all of these programs and more at LFPL.org/Events.
