Summer YLAH Kits By: Library Staff May 28, 2021

Your Library at Home

The summer YLAH kits have been curated to accommodate individuals and families so you only need to register for one kit per family.
*At the end of each month families interested in additional kits will have the opportunity to request them if we have any leftover.

In each kit, you will find an assortment of fun things!  Let your creativity and imagination guide you, but we’ve also provided some suggestions.

Also, be sure to register for the summer reading program which runs from June 14th – July 31st.  Everyone who completes will have $5 donated in their name to a non-profit serving North Liberty.

  • Peat pots, gardening stakes and seeds – All the trimmings to start a garden!
