Storytime Kit: STEM Discovery

These kits are primarily for classroom or home classroom use but families do check them out as well. They include books at a variety of levels, toys that includes both educational and sensory aspects, and sheets with tips for early literacy and sensory play. They're kept in plastic bins with a handle and people are only supposed to open them at home, not play with them in the library, unlike our regular toy bags. There is a label reminding patrons of this rule. This kit is a mixture of measuring, water play, sensory toys, and other STEM-related ideas.
