Things to do in Elkhart during Spring Break

Spring Break is here and EPL has lots to do to ensure no one gets bored.

If the Indiana weather doesn’t cooperate, the library provides a place to come, hang out, pick up books, or just enjoy some fun.

Here is what is happening at the library during Spring Break.


Each location hosts a Storytime aimed at youngsters. These are interactive times for stories, play, songs and more. Find all of our Storytimes here. During Spring Break, we try to include activities for older siblings who may attend, too.
