The art of fort-making and snowball fights will be the focus of a children’s program this week at the Algoma Public Library. The library is hosting their Kids Winter Party in the afternoon of January 11th, with fort making, snowball fights and other games. Dylan Rummel, the Children’s Librarian, says that the snow, of course, will be cotton, paper and other materials, and forts of cardboard boxes, that should make for good contests and games with snowballs.
The library will have all the items needed for the party but welcomes parents to bring cardboard boxes or other similar games to join in the fun. The age range is kindergarten through fifth grade and will include music and sing-along geared to the ages of the children who attend. Rummel adds that this is one of the events that they do over the winter to engage children in the library and make it fun.
