Shark Day Take & Make

STEM Kit #3

Do Science at HOME STEAM Kits (Still have about 40 Kits available)

These take-home kits are to inspire families to work together at home through hands-on science! Each boxed kit on a theme (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) includes all you need to create three different projects. They are 1-per-family on a first-come basis. They are ideal for children in grades 3 through 8, and contain choking hazards, such as sewing needles, key rings, and other small parts. Each kit is FREE and is generously donated by the Kentucky Science Center through the efforts of the KY Department of Library and Archives.

The Youth Services Department is a vibrant and whimsical space where young learners can explore, play, share, and grow. We curate curiosity in ages 0-18 with year-round programs, book suggestions, and information help. Come visit our story barn to play and explore.  Do a scavenger hunt or work a puzzle. Use your imagination in creative role-play.  Make a craft, color, or play checkers. We support literacy every day, especially through 1000 Books Before Kindergarten, 50 Books to Read in Kindergarten, Every Child Ready to Read, and school readiness programs.  For Teens, grab a book, join TAB, attend Manga Club, play a game or hang with friends. Youth Services: where books are just part of the story!

For information on programs and storytimes, please contact the Youth Services Manager.
