The library is your source for more than just books. We have a huge variety of DVDs, CDs, magazines, digital content, and now STEAMto Go kits! What are STEAM to Go kits? They are sets of hands-on, educational toys and activities you can check out from the library, just like books and other library materials! We have several kits to choose from, ranging in level and interest from PreK to upper elementary. Get outside with the "Explore the Outdoors Kit" complete with an Aquaviewer and Explorer Scope for up-close examination of rocks, bugs, and other outdoor curiosity. Feed your child's dinosaur fascination with the All About Dinosaur Kit, featuring interactive activities to encourage imaginative play, memory, and strategy skills. Test your ingenuity with the Engineering Gears and Mazes Kit or learn about alternative energy using the Green Energy Kit so you can build over 125 projects including a solar robot and an electric mini car. For younger children, check out the Ready, Set, Kindergarten kit, or have a blast building and creating using the Trucks and Tools kit. Other kit themes include My Amazing Body, Coding and Robotics, I Love Animals, and more!
