Story Kits & Program Materials

SCLS has a collection of story kits and program materials. The story kits typically include puppets, flannel board pieces, story props and scripts, and books related to a central theme. There are other non-story kits such as puppets, a set of ocean science materials, chess clocks, and a parachute with cds to play during programs. A small Ellison die cutter, a Sizzix cutting machine, and a button maker are also available from SCLS Delivery.

Story kits are available for member library staff.  They are not to be loaned to individual patrons or groups.

To reserve materials, send an e-mail to delivery staff with your request; in order to provide you with the best service, please contact delivery staff as early as possible with your request. Please contact Shawn Brommer with any questions regarding the Story Kits and Program Materials.
