The winter weather is here to stay but don’t worry the library has fun programs to keep you and your family busy until spring arrives! 

Hone your creative skills and share your materials at the Yarn Exchange, Open Stitch, and Spinning Demonstration on Feb. 1.

Stop by Studio 300 on Feb. 13 for Sweetie Shots Valentine Photos and get your picture taken for someone special.

Parents, sign-up now for our popular monthly Panera Milk and Cookies event on Feb. 20. Check our online calendar for a full listing of events and programs. 

We are also excited to team up with the Bolingbrook Park District in their third annual Winterfest. The event is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and it's free for the whole family. Experience outdoor adventure, explore the library and check out a variety of fun indoor programs. 

Bundle up and enjoy activities like snowshoeing, ice skating and snowman building. Try your hand at snowball slingshot or hockey slap-shot. Don’t forget to visit the reindeer and then warm up by the fire pit.

The Bookmobile will also be parked outside so make sure to stop by for a tour if you haven’t had the chance before. As long as weather permits Ashbury’s will also be outside and will be selling delicious items like chili and pizza. 

Join us indoors for crafts, face painting and short films. Stop by Studio 300 for the Freeze Frame Photo Booth and then attend Cozy Comfort Foods, where you’ll learn how to make tasty winter soups, stews and other seasonal dishes. Teens, don’t miss the special craft or Open Game Play, which includes board games, Giant Jenga and video games in the Vortex. Brook’s Cafe will also be selling treats, including a themed cookie and beverage. 

The library drive-thru will be closed for the day to allow easier access to the parking lot and additional space for activities. A shuttle will be available from Brooks Middle School so attendees are encouraged to park there.

Please visit either the library or Bolingbrook Park District website for more information about the event.
