Themed Backpacks

Our themed backpacks include a wide variety of activities for our younger patrons. We have six different types of backpacks for children: Emotions, Sprout Early Learning, Instrument, Puppet, Sensory, and  STEAM-to-Go. Each backpack, except Sensory, is curated with a book(s) that complements the activity inside. Library patrons can check out up to two backpacks at a time for a period of three weeks. 

With our themed backpacks, our youngest patrons can do some at-home science with magnets, learn to express their emotions, play musical instruments along to a song, or learn about nutrition, along with many other great learning opportunities!

We also have two NASA Space Explorer backpacks featuring a tabletop telescope and much more. These backpacks may be checked out one at a time and will appeal to patrons of all ages.
