Your Adventure Begins at the Lafayette Public Library. Check out an Adventure Kit!

Get ready to dig deep into science, tech, outdoors, crafts, and early literacy! The Lafayette Public Library is adding Adventure Kits to their collection with a generous donation from Cox Communications.

An Adventure Kit is like a library program in a box that can be checked out with your library card. Each kit comes complete with hands-on activities, companion books, and an inventory list to easily keep track of items. These kits were created for all age groups and offer a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) themes. There are 40 kits with 16 different themes for patrons to explore.

"Now more than ever, we know it's important for families to find exciting ways to keep learning. We're proud to partner with the Lafayette Public Library to help get science and technology into the hands of children in Lafayette Parish," states David D'Aquin, Public Affairs Manager for Cox Communications.

The kits range from early literacy (Rhyme Time kits and On the Farm kits) to science-themed (Microscope kit and Human Body kits) to technology (Inventor LittleBits kits and Synth LittleBits kits) to outdoor fun (Bird Watching kits and Metal Detecting kits).

The Bird Watching Adventure Kit, for example, contains everything you need to spot birds from a safe distance in the great outdoors, including binoculars, field guides, and Louisiana Bird books. The Metal Detector Adventure Kit includes a metal detector, fully charged battery, and a helpful book about metal detecting (sorry, no treasure maps).

For a full list of available Adventure Kits, visit lafayettepubliclibrary.org/adventurekits<http://lafayettepubliclibrary.org/?page_id=50913> or search the library's online catalog for Adventure Kit https://lafla.ent.sirsi.net/client/en_US/default/search/results?qu=adventure+kit&te=.

One Adventure Kit per library card can be checked out for 28 days. Currently, kits may not be renewed. Adults/parents/caregivers only may check kits out. They must be returned to the circulation desk; they cannot be returned through the book drop or drive-thru. Holds can be placed for kits to be delivered to any branch.
