Are you planning a stay-cation for spring break this year? Berthoud Community Library has a full week of special programs planned for families and kids of all ages.

Movement, Music, and Play
Can play improve your brain? You bet! Studies show play has an evolutionary purpose that helps brain growth, especially for cognitive reasoning. So get into the library and play with Miss Christy. Wednesday, April 8, 4-6 p.m., grades K-2
Tiny Treasures with Polymer Clay
Love Play-Doh? Try out polymer clay and make a tiny treasure to decorate your room or a fairy garden. Thursday, April 9, 11 a.m.-12 p.m., grades 3-5, younger with parent
