Books In A Box

 

        

 

WHAT IS IT

Storytime Kits are themed boxes that can be checked out and shared at home with young children!

 

Each kit contains picture books, an activity book, a fingerplay, a song booklet, and a puppet or flannel story board. Kits can be sent to any branch for check out. You may place a hold online or ask library staff for assistance. You can return the kit to any SSJCPL Branch Library in person - Not in book drops.

 

These early literacy kits are made possible through funding from First 5 San Joaquin.
