Our Lit Kit to Go service was so popular over the summer we are now making it a permanent service.
Lit Kits include library books, activities, and other educational materials. Kits will be filled and picked up on a weekly basis (or less frequently, depending on patron preference).
We have also expanded the service to include Infant/Toddler ages 0-2 and Preschool ages 3-5.
