What to do in times of confinement

To counter the boredom that confinement can cause, many initiatives were quickly put in place in the cultural and recreational sector.

Here are some suggestions of activities to keep all the family members entertained and active, while staying safe and respecting the measures in place.

 

Kids and teens

The library offers video tutorials for craft projects on various themes, all available online on our YouTube account. We even have prepared small kits containing the necessary materials to make some of the projects.

Reservations are required to pick up the kits.
