Library Learning Bags: Outdoor Fun Edition

Stop by any of our six branches to pick up a Library Learning Bag. This month's bag will include outdoor-themed activities, as well as a copy of Sesame Street's picture book, Comfy-Cozy Nest. Thank you to Polk County Conservation and Iowa Alliance for Healthy Kids for their donations to this month's bag! 

Library Learning Bags are intended for ages 5-12 and are an opportunity for your child to enjoy open-ended creativity. Tag your projects on Instagram @desmoineslibrary or Facebook @dmlib. The Library Learning Bag supplies are limited and are intended to be used with adult supervision.
