Kits for Kids are a special resource for childcare providers, teachers, parents, and others who work with young children. The kits are designed for use with preschool-age children.

Each theme-based kit comes in a blue canvas bag and contains

  • 5 children's books,
  • 1 DVD,
  • 1 CD, and
  • 1 activity book and/or 1 folder with theme-related fingerplays, songs, and suggestions for learning activities.

Along with the materials listed above, each kit also contains

  • a list of kit contents and a list of other theme-related books and materials available at the Emporia Public Library and
  • an evaluation sheet. (Please take time to fill this out; your feedback will help us to better meet your needs!)
