I hate to break it to you, Ms. Ice Scraper, but your days are numbered.

How do you feel, Snow Boots Twins, about splashing through puddles rather than stomping through drifts?

Spring arrives in central Ohio on March 20, but we're so excited about the coming season's programming slate that we had to share a sneak peek. Come out of hibernation and join us at any Worthington Libraries location.

Community Breakfast

The newly expanded Worthington Park Library will be the focus of this year's Community Breakfast.

Help us celebrate April 10 by visiting the space at 1389 Worthington Centre Drive and seeing all it has to offer, including a larger meeting room, dedicated teen space and an expanded adult collection. It also has a fireplace, group-study rooms and additional computers.

The free event, sponsored by the Friends Foundation of Worthington Libraries, starts at 7:30 a.m. Register via tmessenger@worthingtonlibraries.org.

Marvel Day

Prepare for the final Avengers movie, "Endgame," with an afternoon dedicated to all things Marvel, comics and superheroes.

Old Worthington Library, 820 High St., will be the site oft the April 13 event, at which attendees can train like an Avenger, have their picture taken with members of the Heroes Alliance and play video games from 1 to 5 p.m.

A costume contest starts at 2 p.m. for anyone in "Marvel"-ous attire. Celebrity judges will award prizes in four categories: ages 12 and younger, ages 13 to 17, ages 18 and older and group.

Science celebration

The library system is proud to be a part of the 2019 COSI science festival.

Experiments, demonstrations and hands-on activities will take place May 4 in downtown Columbus, and a number of central Ohio communities have planned events in the days leading up to it.

On May 2, children can be arcade builders at Worthington Park Library, using Makey Makey boards to create unusual controllers.

Sound engineers in the making will love Old Worthington Library's May 3 science session, where they will explore sound and music through crafts and experiments.

Both programs are for ages 6 to 11. For a complete list of spring programs, look for the library's newsletter in the mail later this month, or go to worthingtonlibraries.org/calendar.
