Storytime Kits

December 30, 2010

Storytime kitAll sorts of joy and fun are stuffed into big blue tubs wearing bright yellow lids with big googly eyes. These are our Storytime kits. They contain themed material to emphasize literacy and language use for 2 – 6 year-olds. In other words, they contain a bunch of fun stuff for kids to use and play with, and the best part: they probably don’t realize they’re learning anything.

Every item inside the kits reflects a certain theme. Currently, we have 68 themes. All kits contain a handful of books and other fun extras that help reinforce the theme. Some kits have puppets, puzzles, stuffed animals, manipulative toys, activity sheets, and other educational tools. Warning: Some items may be a choking hazard for children under three years of age. Please use items under close adult supervision.

Storytime kits, as you can imagine, are in high demand. You can reserve a kit up to a year in advance for a specific two-week period. There is a $5.00/day late fee on these kits.

Funding for our Storytime Kits was provided by:
Rochester Public Library Foundation
Judy and Jim Sloan Foundation
Wal-Mart North, Rochester MN
Robert and Sarah Keller
Rochester Kiwanis Clubs
Sam’s Club
Fundraiser by Ann Farnell and Jane Callahan
