Program Description

Spring Break Take & Make Packets

Are you looking for something fun to do over Spring Break? BPL has your back! Children ages 3-11 years will engage in art & crafts and STEM challenge activities using various materials provided in our Spring Break Take & Make Packets.

On a first-come, first-serve registration basis, the Library will provide 200 packets which will include materials to complete several activities. Instructions will be included in the packets but no online instruction — neither pre-recorded nor live — will be provided. Packets and activities provided are suitable for children ages 3-11 years. Any child under the age of 5 years should be supervised and assisted by a parent as packets may include small pieces.


Registration for these packets will be open from Monday, March 1, 2021, at 10am to Friday, March 12, 2021, at 12pm. Due to a having a limited supply of packets, we will not be able to provide additional packets once registration is full. During the registration window for this program, registration can be completed online below, in person at the Children’s Services Desk, or by calling 309.590.6155 during the registration window. Registration is required for each child wanting to receive a packet. Once you are registered, you will receive a confirmation/reminder email including packet pick-up information.


Packets will only be available for pick up from Friday, March 19, 2021, to Saturday, March 27, 2021, during usual operating hours. Your packet will be available at either curbside pickup, at the Children's Desk, or on the bookmobile, depending on the choice you made when you registered.
