For the little ones who attend storytime programs, we have Storytime kits available. Each kit contains a shaker egg, a storytime scarf, a bean bag, wrist bells, bubbles, and rhythm sticks. With this kit, children can participate in virtual programs at home, and at in-person events, they will have their own supplies and will not need to share.
A Virtual Library is available below with stories read by Miss Noreen as well as songs and rhymes using items found in the kits.

In March, we provided take home kits for adults with a variety of library related games and more. We created some helpful videos on using the PLUS library catalog, signing into your library account, and reserving library materials. We created a video on how to search Kent District Library in Michigan What's Next Database for readers of series books. We also created a video on how to use SearchOhio and OhioLink. These videos are linked here, and they are also posted on the library's YouTube Channel.
