The McIntosh Memorial Library is helping bring a national movement to Viroqua titled, “Screen-Free Week,” March 18-24. The event is an opportunity for communities to rediscover the joys of life beyond the screen. It encourages participants to unplug from digital entertainment and spend free time playing, reading, daydreaming, creating, exploring, and connecting with family and friends.
A “Science Night” will be held in the library’s program room, 205 S. Rock Ave., Tuesday, March 20, from 6-7 p.m. The event will enable participants to enjoy an evening of hands-on science experiments. There will be a family games night at Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School, 431 E. Court St., Wednesday, March 21, from 6-7 p.m. Family games for participants of all ages will be available to play. On Thursday, March 22, the Viroqua Elementary School, located at 115 N. Education Ave., will be providing a music and movement program from 6-7 p.m.
The community is invited to attend one, some, or all of the activities scheduled during “Viroqua’s Screen Free Week.” Nationally, “Screen-Free Week” will be celebrated April 30-May 6.
