Spring Break Week!

April showers bring May flowers and Rainbows! The Town of Ballston Community Library is proud to present a Spring Break Take and Make, an activity kit for the school holiday break! This is a do it yourself kit, which includes materials and instructions using beads and pipe cleaners to make a rainbow. Recommended for ages 3-6.


The kits are available during library hours the week of April 5th-10th, and are located in a bin outside of the library on a first come first serve basis.

Feelings in Story, Art, and Games

We all have feelings! What makes us feel happy, or sad, or proud, or frustrated, or disappointed? We’ll explore how the artists create characters in picture books and in artwork that represent those feelings. We’ll play some games that will help you identify and talk through some feelings with your preschooler far beyond the class!


For ages 3-5 on Zoom. *Registration required. A link will be emailed before the program.
