Snow Day Activities - image of a snowman wearing fun sunglasses

It's a snow day! Looking for fun things to do while stuck inside? The library has you covered with fun activities that can all be done from the comfort of your home.

PLEASE NOTE: The library is also closed today (Jan 17) due to the poor weather conditions so unfortunately coming to visit us is NOT one of the fun activities on the list. Don't worry though - we have lots of other fun things you can do from home!
