March break may nearly be over but there’s still more fun and excitement to be had at the Brampton Library before kids head back to class.

Brampton Library branches have been hosting a slate of events this week from science experiments to gaming events to keep busy during the break. And while Friday is the last day of the library’s March break events there are still plenty of activities to enjoy – like turning the library into a golf course.

Mini Golf in the Library will see participants work together to design and build a nine-hole mini golf course in Brampton’s
Cyril Clark and South West library branches. The free event will also sneak some education into the program by giving guests a chance to learn about architecture, engineering, math, and science by observing the golf ball as it travels through the course and into the hole.

The event runs from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. and is open for kids aged 6 to 12, with free tickets available 30 minutes before the program starts.

There’s also an after-hours Escape the Library event, where guests will take part in a library-themed escape room “to defeat the books that will try to keep you trapped.”

Other programs running on Friday include a drop-in video game session at the Four Corners branch to meet other local gamers for some action on the Nintendo Switch, STEAM Station activities for kids aged 6 to 12 at the South Fletcher’s and Gore Meadows branches, and Book Bingo at the Springdale branch.
