We offer a variety of themed learning kits designed to provide teachers and parents with lesson plans and support materials for hands-on learning activities. These kits are "lessons in a box" that you can reserve and have delivered to the CCPL branch of your choice on a specific date.

All of our kits have been created according to Ohio Learning Standards. Themes include: ABCs, addition and subtraction, animals, feelings, fitness, holidays, making choices, weather and many more. Some of our kits are appropriate for classroom use, while others are designed for small groups.
