Library Hoopla – June 2021

Library Hoopla – June 2021

This month’s theme for the Outdoor Club is “Take a Hike!” It’s time to hit the trails! Did you know you can now borrow day passes to any Ontario Parks from the library? We also have MAP Sacks to help your little ones explore the trails. This month, learn what to take hiking, complete our trail scavenger hunt and learn how to make a paracord bracelet!

This month’s Take & Make Kits include:
Paracord Survival Bracelet (age 12+): Useful and fashionable! Learn to make a paracord bracelet to take on a hike or camping.
Grab and Go Kits: Biweekly kits for the little ones from EarlyON. Explore the senses with this week’s kit!
