Looking for fun, free things to do with your school-age child during Fall Break? Look no further than the library! We have a ton of great events for the entire family. I’m writing this post both as part of the library’s communications team and as a mom that will be at the library the week of September 15!
My child is in kindergarten and, for the first time, I have to make the decision that all working parents deal with: what to do for school breaks? As a mom, when I saw the school calendar’s upcoming fall break, I was conflicted – should I send my child to camp? Or daycare? Or…? I was thinking about this decision while our team was preparing the library’s marketing materials for September, and then it hit me: the library has tons of things to do! Of course!
So, I thought I’d share with you the top 5 things that me and my little dude are thinking about doing next week. What’s on your list?
1. Monday, September 15: Fall Break Game Day! 12-2 pm, Acworth Library. The whole family is invited to come to Acworth Library and enjoy playing board games and puzzles together.
2. Tuesday, September 16: School Break Mystery Film Fest, 2:30 pm, West Cobb Regional Library. We will be showing mysteries during the school break. Today we will be showing The Pink Panther (Rated PG). Bring a snack and enjoy the show! Please call the library for more information: 770-528-4699
3. Wednesday, September 17: Full STEAM Ahead – Moon Festival! 4 pm, Vinings Library. What’s STEAM? Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math! Join us every Wednesday afternoon to explore a different STEAM topic! It’s hands-on fun, guaranteed! (You may want to wear a smock- things might get messy!) Call the library for more information or to find out what we’ll be learning about this week! Please note: this program is limited to ages 5 years and up.
4. Thursday, September 18: Legomania! 4 pm, South Cobb Regional Library. Are you a LEGO maniac? If so, come to the library and use our LEGOS and create a masterpiece! Just bring your imagination and we’ll build great things. This is a drop in program appropriate for ages 5 and up.
5. Friday, September 19: This is a great day to visit one of our amazing State Parks! Stop by the library and borrow a Georgia ParkPass, which will save you the $5 parking fee!
What will you and your kids do for Fall Break? Will we see you at the library? If so, be sure to say hi!
Update – I had listed the incorrect time for the STEAM program Wendesday. It’s corrected above – the program is at 4 pm, not 4:30.
