Join Pinhey’s Point Historic Site at your local Ottawa Public Library branch for heritage-inspired March Break fun. While Hamnett K. Pinhey and his family settled along the Ottawa River, other members of the Pinhey family stayed in England and others settled in Australia. Discover the ways Early Settlers communicated across great distances, with letters and postcards, and try your hand at writing a postcard with pen and ink yourself. Children ages 7-12.

To register, visit the Programs and Events ( page on the Ottawa Public Library’s website and search “Pinhey’s Point Historic Site”.
