This year, make Idea Exchange your stopover on the way to Toyland. Our new PlaySmarts Toy & Game Collection catalogues dozens of lendable toys and games for all ages with an emphasis on learning through play. Learn about the collection, and then borrow something to try out before you buy it at the store.

Some of our online programs still have spaces available. Look up programs here and come join us online for Math Quest, Kindergarten Concepts, Music n’ Motion, STEAM Storytime, and more.

For the rest of the year, we still have Crafty Creation bags to pick up at each location (first come, first served while supplies last), so come pick one up and make something cool.

This year we’re having a Winter Carnival at each location where we (finally!) get to put out some of our big games that have been mothballed since the start of 2020. There will be different games on different days at each location, so there’s anyways something new to try. No registration required.

For those of you who love reading as much as we do, don’t forget to request a stack of our seasonal picture books to read together on the couch over the holidays. You can also request a stack of our seasonal DVDs to pick up at the Idea Exchange location nearest you. We’ve got hundreds of titles to warm the heart on those cold, dark nights (hot cocoa not included).

Have a wonderful holiday season from all of us in the Youth Services Department.
