Programming Kits

Our programming kits provide the materials needed for running a program with children of a variety of ages.

Story Time Kits

NCKLS’ Story Time Kits contain books, folder stories, and interactive toys focused on a topic. They are for use as either a passive programming resource or to enhance library storytimes. There are 25 Story Time Kits ranging in topic from Farm to Dr. Seuss to Active Play. Story Time Kits can be checked out by any NCKLS library for up to two months. Libraries can share these resources with community partners as they deem appropriate.  Check out a Story Time Kit Here.

Maker Kits

NCKLS’ Maker Kits contain projects and books related to a specific theme. The materials included allow teens and tweens to get a taste of how different things work and try their hands at creating something new, be it a robot or electric playdough. These kits provide an experience centered program, rather than a product centered program, and (with the exception of the Mini Weapons Kit and the Break It reMake It Kit) all materials in the kits must be returned to NCKLS. There are currently fourteen Maker Kits, but more are on the way. Maker Kits can be checked out by any NCKLS library for up to two months. Check out a Maker Kit Here.
