4 Programming Kits are available for libraries to borrow.  Much like the One Book Every Young Child Trunks, these kits are ready-to-go-programs that will make your programming a bit easier!


Kit Descriptions:

  1. Lego Fun!  Get together and Build! Build! Build! This kit includes standard Lego pieces as well as Lego coloring pages.
  2. Princesses From Around the World!  What is it like to be a real-life princess? The contents of this kit will allow children to examine the lives of princesses from around the world.  Through the use stories, rules of etiquette, music, and a variety of props, children will experience what it takes to lead a royal life.
  3. Bounce Around the World!  Bounce your way around the world and discover how balls and spheres are used in different countries. This kit includes the equipment for exploring games and traditions from around the globe. 
  4. Fairy Tales Meet Science!  Fairy tales allow our imaginations to soar.  If we listen carefully we can discover more about our world. The contents of this kit provide stories from around the world and the necessary scientific tools for young patrons to examine the details with the eyes and ears of a scientist. 


How to Get a Kit: 

  • To reserve a kit,  email Rachel Brehm (brehmr(at)einetwork(dot)net as the kits now live at Braddock Library, and she will enter your name and information with your information on the schedule.   
  • Kits are to be returned to Braddock (not ACLA.) 
  • If there is someone waiting for a kit, please make sure it is in the mail by Thursday so that the next library can receive it by Monday. Please plan your programs and reservation dates accordingly. Rachel Brehm will direct you where to send it if you are unsure.


Lego Fun!


Note on the Lego Kit:

This kit circulates with three full bags of standard Legos.  Please do not mix these with patron Legos.  Make sure that when you are finished, you still have three full bags of standard Legos before you return this kit.
