Here at the library, we always have new things to explore, including our new Discovery Kits! These hands-on, interactive kits are now available to check out and take home, and they are extremely popular--we can't seem to keep them on the shelf! Each kit includes a variety of books, educational DVDs, music CDs, games, activities, and hands-on fun meant to help young children explore and learn more about each topic! We currently have six different kits:
Here's a peek into Discovery Kit #6: Insects, Level 2!
And here's a list of what's included in Discovery Kit #6:

Discovery Kits check out for three weeks just like juvenile books and can be put on hold and renewed if no holds exist. You can find the Discovery Kits in the Children's Department at Main Library or place a hold through our catalog or library staff. These kits are a great resource for homeschooling families, at-home preschool students, snow days, or any day! Even the Children's staff may have learned something new while browsing through the kits (did you know there is a such thing as a ghost spider?!) and we think you will too!
