From creative outlets to video games, here’s what’s going on in Woodstock and Oxford County this March break
There’s plenty of March Break fun across the Friendly City and Oxford County this week
Each of the 14 Oxford County libraries are offering their own kind of unique programming throughout the week – and those programs are filling fast.
Room is still available for the Ingersoll branch’s Thursday afternoon mad science program for kids 5-12.
Ingersoll branch program services co-ordinator Gail Kavelman said all children and teen programs are free of charge. The library will still be open during regular hours for people to visit and even try out their green screen.
“They can try their hand at green screening, whatever that entails,” she joked.

The Woodstock Art Gallery has you covered for all of your creative needs this March Break.
All week long, children from ages five to 12 can take part in the gallery’s week-long Art Camp. Cost is $150 for members and $175 for non-members. Early and after care is available for an additional $5 a day.
The program allows kids to design and create their own sculptures, collages, drawings, paintings and more. They will also be free to explore the exhibits, experiment with a variety of creative techniques and play games.
Families are also welcome to drop in throughout the week to discover the gallery with self-serve activities from the art cart or to explore the exhibits.

If art isn’t your thing and you’d rather spend the break gaming, then the Woodstock Public Library is where you want to be. That’s right, all week long the library has programs centred around board games, video games and everything in between. The program runs every day and costs $2.
Every day at the library has something different in store. On Monday, take part in Minecraft Mania. Tuesday is Jumbo Game Day, where everyone is invited to play some larger-than-life versions of classic games like Jenga, Yahtzee and dominoes, and that’s just the start of the week. For the full schedule, visit the library’s website at mywpl.ca.
Not a gamer or find yourself very artistic? Well, lucky for you that free skates take place at the Southwood Arena all week. Each day, skates take place from 11:15 a.m. to 12:05 p.m.. The only exception to the schedule isThursday, when it runs from 11 a.m. to 11:50 a.m.
