Remember Those Science Kits?

It has been one year since the Science Kits made their debut at the Roselle Public Library. Oh, what a year it has been!  Thanks to monies we received from the IEEE Grant, donations from local area businesses and the Friends of the Library, 40 unique kits were purchased for the Youth Services and Young Adult areas.  Recently we ran the circulation numbers for our kits and boy-oh-boy have they been doing well, which can only mean one thing - You Like Them!  You Really Like Them!

I thought I'd share some of the top kits that go out in the Youth Services Department.  If you haven't checked them out, you may want to make that special trip in here to peruse our selection.  Families just love them (and I've got data to support that!).

The most beloved kit is Architecture: Early Childhood.  This kit was graciously funded by a donation
from AA Bonavolanta Architect and Real Estate.  We shared the news with them and they were so thrilled that they made another donation so that we can purchase a second kit!  Talk about wonderful people!

Another bone-crushingly popular kit is the one about dinosaurs.  Your family might dig this kit which contains fossils, a book and a DVD on dinosaurs.  Our two coding kits, BeeBots and Ozo-bots, remain a top choice for our young patrons learning how to code.

In addition, don't forget the math kits to explore new math skills.  Many of them have fun games to play; you'll be learning and you won't even know it!  We'll be happy to show you where the kits are located or you can look them up from home in our catalog to reserve a kit (limit one per card).  The best part is you can explore and be creative with the kits for two whole weeks!  Let the exploring begin!!
