There’s no room for boredom to set in this week because APL has so many great activities planned for kids and teens during their winter vacation. We’ve got a number of arts and crafts programs, along with LEGO-building sessions, story times, family movies, and more. The biggest event is the Roll into Reading family roller skating party on Sunday, Feb. 24, at 1-3 pm at the Washington Avenue Armory.
