Here’s how the Take & Make Kit subscription service works:
- Interested? Fill out a Google Form telling us what kinds of kits you want, how many, how to contact you, and what your pickup preference is
- Receive new Take & Make Kits as soon as they become available! Once subscribed, the Library will automatically create and reserve kits for you based on your responses to the subscription form.
- We will notify you when a new kit(s) are available for pickup. When you are notified that your kit is ready, visit the Library for pickup!
That’s it! You tell us what you need and we’ll make sure you get new kits every time they become available. No need to check back, check in, sign up, write back, or any other fuss or muss. Just new kits as soon as we make them!
All kits contain two or more projects. Projects require basic supplies like scissors, glue, tape, and crayons/markers. Kits will vary between craft kits or STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) kits.
Kids ages 7 & under will likely need at least some help with the projects, while kids ages 8 and older will likely be able to do all or most of them independently.
After a period of unavailability, the majority of Roselle Public Library's kits are now available for checkout! Literacy Kits, Simply Science: Discovery Kits To Go!, and the newly introduced Polish DVD Kits may be borrowed by library cardholders. Be assured that all kits have been quarantined and sanitized prior to redistribution.
