Brought my daughter in today to make a candle and support a local business for Small Business Saturday and had a great experience! Staff are friendly and attentive, we were offered bottle water and cupcake samples! It doesn't get much better than that! I initially was just going to watch my daughter but then decided to join the fun and made a beautiful Christmas tree candle! Thank you Candle Collective! We will be back! -Megan Parker

Fun Things To Do with the Kids During Mid-Winter Recess

Winter break is always fun, but it can be challenging too. Depending on the weather, your days may be spent cooped up indoors. But not this year! We have assembled a list of family fun activities to get you and the kids out of the house:

1. Visit The Children’s Museum at Saratoga

The Children’s Museum at Saratoga, located at 69 Caroline Street in Saratoga Springs, offers two floors of hands-on, play based exhibits that mirror the Saratoga community, providing a space where children can interact, explore and imagine their world together through play.

From story time to crafts to movies, there’s plenty of family fun at the library!
