March Break begins next week, and we have a fun-filled line-up of programs to keep children, families and teens busy all week long. With 400+ programs planned at branches throughout the city, there is something for everyone, from music and magic to science and maker programs. Information about our full program line-up is available at tpl.ca/marchbreak. Don’t know where to start? We have highlighted some of the fantastic programs for children and teens that you might want to check out.

Children's Programs

Children playing with Snap Circuits

Mad Science

Mad Science programs are being held at 17 branches across the city this March Break. Kids and families can watch performers conjure up foggy dry ice storms, float a Mad Science hovercraft, make magic mud, alter sound waves and much more. 


Young engineers (ages 5+) undertake an introductory robotics project at this program; together, children and caregivers will create their very own wobblebot. 

Creative Movement

This program invites kids aged 2-5 to shake their sillies out and get creative during a special storytime that focuses on music, movement and physical literacy!

Let's Talk Science: Budding Biologists

Through hands-on activities kids will learn how insects and birds adapt for survival, so stop by this program with your budding biologist. 

More children’s programming highlights are available on our Growing a Reader blog.
