While the York County Public Library has reopened to the public, in-person programming is currently on hiatus. But YCPL Youth Services staff are excited to offer Activity To-Go Kits, a programming model made popular during our 2020 Summer Reading Program. Take home a little bit of library fun with these kits!
The August kits will be available for pick up during our operating hours at both the Tabb and Yorktown Libraries, from Tuesday, August 18, through Saturday, August 29, while supplies last. The kits available this month are:
- Craft Kit: Garden Wind Chimes (ages 5-12)
- Science Kit: Invisible Ink (ages 5-12)
- Snuggle Story Kit: Explore the Beach (ages 0-7)
- Preschool Story Kit: Leaping for Frogs (ages 2 ½ to 5)
- Tiny & Toddler Story Kit: Bathtime Fun (ages 0-4)
The kits all include a themed book list and an activity; the craft and science kits also include supplies and instructions for an experiment or craft. Links to the main content from the kits will also be made available on the library’s blog, at www.yorkcounty.gov/libraryblog.
Kits are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are in limited supply. Interested patrons should plan to call Youth Services before coming to pick up a kit to ensure their preferred kits are still available. Contact the Tabb Youth Services desk at 757-890-5110 or the Yorktown Youth Services desk at 757-890-3236. Curbside pickup of Activity To-Go Kits is available on request.
