    Surrey, BC – Surrey Libraries is offering free Spring Break Kits and books to children! The custom activity kits have been put together by youth services library staff and can be picked up at any Surrey Libraries branch starting Saturday, March 13 until supplies last. There is a limit of one kit per child.

    Activities in the kits include a Nature Scavenger Hunt, Book Bingo, Cat’s Cradle, Hopscotch, and crafts. Instructions and most supplies are also provided except for markers, glue, and scissors.

    Spring Break can lead to what parents and educators call the “spring break slip.” Activities like the ones included in the Surrey Libraries Spring Break Kit will help keep young minds engaged as they enjoy a much-needed break from school.

    “Visiting the library in person or online is one way families can enjoy their break together,” said Sara Grant, Manager of Youth Services. “In addition to these kits, Surrey Libraries offers many free activities and programs that promote exploration and learning.”

    Children don’t need a library card to get a kit, but can sign up for one for free by visiting any Surrey Libraries branch and picking up a free kit at the same time.

    There are 10 Surrey Libraries branches located at City Centre, Clayton, Cloverdale, Fleetwood, Guildford, Newton, Ocean Park, Port Kells, Semiahmoo, and Strawberry Hill. For more information on what to expect when you visit, go to www.surreylibraries.ca.
