February 1, 2021 - 5:46pm -- publicity

While winter is upon us and in-person library programs are on hold, you can always rely on our resourceful library staff to find a way to keep kids - and, in some cases, adults - occupied with creative, artsy and educational activities! Here are just a few of the takeaway options on offer this month around at Mount Pleasant, Rochambeau, South Providence and Washington Park. The list is not exhaustive, so be sure to ask what's available at your neighborhood location.

Kids can pick up a bag of arts supplies, take it home to make art, then bring their creations back to the library to put on display. Ask Mr Garrett!
