The last few weeks of Youth in Action at the Mimico Library have been focused around getting the girls excited about the new school year. This included lots of stress-relieving active games as well as activities to get their creative minds ticking again after the long summer break.

Youth in Action @ Mimico would not be complete without a dance off every Tuesday!
