Let’s be honest, parent to parent – getting your little ones out of the house during the winter is difficult, stressful and all-around inconvenient. The taking off and on of all the coats, hats, scarves and everything else is a pain. Do you almost wish there was a way to bring the library home with you?

You’re in luck! At DBRL, you can check out Play As Learning (PAL) kits and Little Red Reading Bag (LRRB) kits that come with books, DVDs, puppets, toys and much more. Each bag is equipped with everything your family needs for hours of fun and learning. All the kits center around themes such as family reading, language development or creativity. And with over twenty bags to choose from, ranging from ages 0-Baby and book5, your family will have plenty to do. You can even place them on hold to pick up at your library or bookmobile.

“As a mom, I love that it is more than just books. It allows me to play games and engage with my children about the themes or content from the books. I also like child readingthat DVDs and books are included for the parent/guardian. They focus on any number of subjects that allow me to learn alongside my kids.”
~ Nathana Clay, DBRL patron (and my wife!)

Our daughter always gets so excited when she sees the red or purple library bag come through the door. It’s like Christmas morning, getting to open it up and see what’s all inside.

So, next time the blustery winter weather has you wishing for warmer days, remember that there is a way to take the fun and learning of the library home with you. Pick up a PAL bag today!
