Your library in Gillette recently added new collections in their Children’s Department and Young Adult (YA) Department for circulation: two YA perler bead kits, three YA glue gun kits, and 23 Children’s STEAM Kits purchased with Campbell County Community Recreation District (CCCPRD) grant money.
The YA kits allow teens to explore crafting activities at home and help complete Teen Take and Make activities that are distributed to teens who visit the CCPL Teen Room. Perler bead kits contain a travel iron, silicone pad, a jar of beads, and various tiles for creating patterns. The glue gun kits contain a glue gun and various glue sticks. Kits check out for 14 days and patrons can find them in the Teen Room. Search “Craft Kit” in our catalog to place a hold.
The STEAM kits allow for at-home exploration of a variety of science, technology, engineering, art, and math activities. A binder at the Children’s desk contains a complete description of each kit. Patrons may browse the binder and request a kit that can then be checked out at the library’s Circulation Desk. These kits check out for 14 days to adult patrons only and require a signed user agreement. Search “STEAM Kit” in our catalog for kit descriptions and to place holds.
