Students waiting for classes to start in the Ferguson-Florissant School District will find plenty of activities to keep them busy at the Florissant Valley Branch of the St. Louis County Library. The branch will provide art supplies, board games, LEGOs and other fun activities for the remainder of the week (August 20-22) from 11:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. The Magic House will be at the branch with make and take projects, and a free lunch will be offered at 12:00 p.m. courtesy of Operation Food Search.
The Florissant Valley Branch is located at 195 New Florissant Road, South. There is not cost to attend, students are welcome to drop by at any time, no registration is required.
The Florissant Valley Branch partners with the Ferguson Florissant School District throughout the year–many students visit the branch to get homework help or participate in the library’s Summer Reading Club. Branch manager Laura Kasak noted that the activities offered this week due to the delayed start of the school year are a normal extension of the branch’s programming efforts. “We’ve always been a positive resource point for the community. The library is a safe place for kids to come and express themselves creatively–we’re glad to offer that opportunity.”
When students return to school, the Florissant Valley Branch will continue to offer programs and resources for students and their families. The branch features a teen center, as well as computers, Wi-Fi and knowledgeable staff. Additional information can be found at www.slcl.org/events or by calling 314-994-3300.
