As the chilly grip of winter begins to loosen its hold, anticipation for spring grows, and the Estevan Public Library is gearing up for a vibrant season ahead. Branch Manager Jason Redshaw shared insights into the library's upcoming March events and the release of their spring program guide in a recent interview on SUN 102.

With spring just around the corner, Redshaw highlighted the significance of Easter falling on March 31st this year. "Yeah, it's happening in March, so we'll be closed the Friday on the 29th, but then on Easter, on the 31st, we will be open and will be open on the Saturday as well," he explained.

The excitement doesn't end there. With Saint Patrick's Day on the horizon, the library has planned a special event for March 14. Redshaw described it as a "date night" for parents, where they can engage in Saint Patrick's Day painting while the kids partake in festive activities supervised by Tracy the library's children programmer. "I believe chasing a leprechaun through the library as well," Redshaw added with a chuckle.

The library's popular Lego Club is also undergoing expansion, catering to preschoolers to foster early exploration and creativity. "Engaging with children and families to start early exploration with Lego," Redshaw elaborated. The club will meet on March 13 and 27 at 4:00 PM.

Furthermore, Redshaw unveiled a new addition to the library's offerings: the Audiobook Club. Set to commence in March, the club will gather on Monday afternoons to explore "A Man Called Ove" by Frederick Backman. "We'll be -through the month, listening to parts of the book, and then discussing it. As well, we'll be watching the film and discussing it," Redshaw explained.

As March approaches, the Estevan Public Library invites the community to partake in a host of enriching experiences, fostering a love for reading, creativity, and community engagement. Make sure you follow them on Facebook to keep up to date with their daily activities.
