Snowstorms, ice, and freezing temperatures, oh winter when will you ever end? If you’re like me, this last month or so of winter can seem like it will last forever. Here at River Forest Public Library, we’ve come up with some great ideas to get you and your family through this last month until spring.
Beach Party at RFPL (Sunday, March 3rd) 2-3 P.M.
The children’s department at River Forest is hosting our own beach party on Sunday, March 3rd from 2-3 P.M. What a great way to celebrate the end of winter! Now, unfortunately River Forest doesn’t have its own beach, but why would we let that stop us? Dig out your summer clothes, and create some warm memories listening to beach stories, dancing, playing games, and enjoying a cool treat to eat. This program is for kids ages 4-8. Make sure to register by 2/27/13 to save your spot.
Donuts for Dads (Saturday March 2nd and 9th) 9:30-11:30 A.M.
I can think of no better way to warm up from the chilly outdoors than to enjoy some hot coffee, donuts, and a fun story time by the fire. Families of all shapes and sizes are invited to the library for these and other fun activities including crafts and games. No registration required.
Museum Adventure Passes
The Museum Adventure Pass program is a great way to get you and your family out of the house and having fun together. River Forest and other Illinois libraries offer cardholders great deals and discounts to museums throughout the Chicagoland area. Participating organizations include the Brookfield Zoo, Lake County Discovery Museum, the Children’s Museum in Oak Lawn, and most recently Legoland Discovery Center in Schaumburg. Visit the Museum Adventure Pass website to learn more and to view a full list of participating organizations.
Have Fun and Happy Spring!
Your RFPL Children’s Department
