Windsor Public Library

The Windsor Public Library (WPL) also has plenty to help keep you occupied during your “staycation.” This year, WPL branches across the city have produced a wide variety of Take and Make options – from crafts and games for the little ones, to baking and “Self Care Kits” for teens and adults.

Whatever your interests, WPL has you covered.

Visit the Windsor Public Library online calendar for more information, or join the library on social media for updates.
