March 2023
Take a March Break

March Break has arrived and 2023 is rolling by faster than ever! We hope you’ll get a chance to rest, relax and recharge.

To help you get in the spirit, we’ve found a few activities to help you make the most of March. Between activities, jobs, food and upcoming fun, there’s plenty to look forward to. However, top priority should be to take a moment for yourself before the craziness of spring gets underway!

Lots of museums and outdoor activities are included, so come back from March break a little wiser and full of stories.

Spring Break Survival Bags

Available at the Library

For some, it’s less about fun and more about survival. If this sounds like you, the Elmsdale Library has prepared survival bags to get you through the week. They also have board games available to borrow, a scavenger hunt, movies through hoopla and much more.

Senior’s Computer Classes

in Elmsdale or Beyond!

Our classes are on break this week, but now is a great time to reach out to plan a senior’s computer class for your community. We currently have classes in Noel and at our office in Elmsdale, but we would love to help more people across East Hants discover the benefits of technology.

Reach out and let us know if you would like to help us bring a class to your community! Classes are free and teach valuable skills like how to use online banking, stay safe online and much more.

To register for classes or to discuss bringing a class to your community, contact our office:
