Libraries across the country are utilizing facilitation kits to provide more structure to their programming plans, and check-out kits to help their patrons take the experience home. Whether you’ve never used a kit before, or consider yourself a kit pro, these resources will provide you with prototyped and tested activities and resources to use with your patrons.

Click into the topic areas below to see examples and resources from the STAR Library Network, State Libraries, and other STAR Net project partners. We hope this area addresses everything you need to know to get started with kits, but if you think we’re missing anything, let us know!
