Interactive kits for learning and play for young adults, teens, and ‘tweens.
This website provides the content checklists, links for expanding learning, booklists, handouts, and helpful hints for this brand-new programming resource for the libraries in Kansas. You Try-It! Kits are available for checkout by school and public libraries for a period of 30 days, with an option to renew, provided they are not on hold for another library. There is no charge for use of the You Try-It! Kits, but return of damaged items or return of kits with lost or stolen items may require assessment of replacement fees.
Our goal is to provide libraries and their patrons with opportunities for creating safe, fun, and educational entertainment programming for the young adults of our region. Our pilot program will serve to address the needs of this young, important population, as a model on the local level that larger libraries will be able to imitate and that larger entities may be able to expand in the future. We seek to cultivate the next generation of lifelong library partners and users, providing them with self-directed games and play–along with ways to connect with each other, their educations, their communities, and the world at large.
It’s time that YOU TRY-IT!
