March Break is almost here! Are you looking for fun ideas for the kiddos, or maybe for yourself? With so much to do, our programs and book lists are sure to keep you busy all week long. Check out our printable March Break flyer or interactive online flyer

The week begins with a bang on March 13, when Ben the Magician brings his 'Bentastic' Magic Show to the Barrie Public Library! This program has limited space. Free tickets will be given out one-half hour before the start of the program on a first-come, first-served basis. Strollers are not allowed in the performance area. Ben the Magician will be visiting Painswick from 10-11am and Downtown from 2-3pm.

Visit Painswick on Tuesday, March 14 from 10-11am for the Holi Indian Festival. Learn all about this beautiful holiday so you can celebrate it in style! If you've got an anime lover at your house, bring them to the Holly Community Library later that day for our Anime Afternoon! Enjoy some activities that celebrate and discuss all things anime and manga. 

Calling all animal lovers! Visit our Holly location on Wednesday, March 15 from 10-11am for Must Love Dogs. See how fast you can go around our human agility course, learn a trick or two and meet our special guests Sophie and Troy. 

Finish off the week in cozy fashion with a very special Pajama Storytime at Painswick on Friday, March 17 from 10-10:30am. Come in your pajamas and bring your second favourite stuffie as Painswick celebrates the cozy comfort of pajamas.
