STEM kits are intended for ages Pre-K through 12. Kits are available for anyone to check out. Find our listing of available kits here.

Tips for STEM Kit check out: 

  • STEM Kits come with many parts. You may be tempted to throw away a containing box or plastic wrapper-please don’t! Return all items inside the kit to the Library.
  • STEM Kits check out for two weeks at a time. They cannot be renewed.
  • STEM Kits can be placed on hold.
  • Each family can check out two kits at a time.
  • STEM Kits are checked out from and returned to the children’s services desk. Please do not try to return kits in the book drop–the tubs will not fit!
