Library plans activities for kids out of school

The holidays are winding down, but the Shawano City-County Library, 128 S. Sawyer St., is planning a no-school day Jan. 22 filled with adventure and inspiration.

There will be two runs through a Minecraft-themed escape room, the first at 11 a.m. and the second at 1 p.m. As an escapee, you are trapped in the eight-bit world and must find your way back to your own world through the locked boxes you uncover.

Beginner ukulele lessons designed for those just starting out will begin at 2 p.m., with ukuleles available to borrow. All individuals are encouraged to try the instrument that is great for beginners.

At 3 p.m., the Creation Station will feature Makey Makey, where you can turn the whole world into a keyboard through this invention kit. Beginners to experts can make the quirkiest of inventions and are limited only through their imaginations.

For questions, contact the library at 715-526-3829. The Shawano City-County Library consists of the main library in Shawano, branches in Birnamwood, Bonduel, Mattoon, Tigerton and Wittenberg as well as a county-wide delivery service.
