Spring Break is just around the corner. With family budgets tight, many are looking for fun and affordable activities to both entertain and create wonderful vacation memories.

Your local Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) member libraries have just what you are looking for—over 50 free, entertaining and educational programs will be offered from March 20–29.

Several libraries are offering daily movie matinees or marathons.

The Hillsboro library is partnering with a local theater company, Bag & Baggage Productions, to offer a free teen acting workshop and screening of Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors.

Family Game Days, Hands-on Crafts, Polar Bear Tales, Fancy Nancy activities and Teen Book, Movie and Music Swaps round out the calendar of fun opportunities.

There is something for all ages from toddlers to teens. It is all local and the best part—it is all free. There is plenty to fill your week-long Spring Break vacation schedule.
