Today, all Bartow County and Cartersville city government offices will be closed, along with the Bartow County Library System.

While the library will be closed, the Cartersville branch will be hosting some special events for youth while schools are out for spring break beginning Monday, April 1.

Events include “Angry Birds Live” for K-5 students. According to the library’s calendar, “Kids can drop-in, make an ‘Angry Bird’ craft and try to knock out the ‘Bad Piggies’ in this live-action version of the popular video game,” on Wednesday, April 3, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m.

“Girl’s Club,” for ages 8 to 13, will be held Thursday, April 4, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The library encourages female “tweens” to “‘Mallow’ out at the library with the marshmallow themed program features games, treats and crafts.” Registration is preferred.

The Bartow History museum will offer spring break camps for children ages 4 to 6 and 7 to 11 years old next week.

According to a press release, “‘Let’s Make Music’ will take place on Monday, April 1, for children ages 4 to 6 years old and on Tuesday, April 2, for ages 7 to 11 years old. ‘Toys and Games Galore’ will take place on Wednesday, April 3, for children ages 4 to 6 years old and on Thursday, April 4, for ages 7 to 11 years old.

“During ‘Let’s Make Music,’ campers will explore different styles of music, enjoy making musical instruments and learn about the various instruments used in popular songs. ‘Toys and Games Galor’ will give campers the opportunity to dive into the world of toys and games as they test their creative skills — they will even try their hand at building a moving toy snake.”

The camps will begin at 9 a.m. and end at noon, with light refreshments being offered each day. The price is $18 for members and $20 for not-yet-members. Advanced registration is required.

To register for camp, call 770-387-3849. Camps will take place at the Bartow History Museum, 4 E. Church St. in downtown Cartersville. Parking is available next to the building. For more information on this and other BHM programs, call 770-382-3818, ext. 6288, or visit www.bartowhistorymuseum.org.

For students who can’t get enough science, Tellus Science Museum is offering a $2 coupon for April 1-5.

“The coupon will be available on our Facebook page beginning [today] and people can go online and print them out,” Marketing Director Joe Schullman said.
