Roblox Game – Weyburn library sets programs for February
Programs for children, teens, adults and families will be held throughout February at the Weyburn Public Library, including activities for Family Day.
A number of the programs will be held online, but many will include use of “take-and-make” kits available from the library to help make the activities more enjoyable.
The move to being online are due to the COVID-19 restrictions imposed by Public Health officials to help keep residents safe.
