The Peoria public libraries offer more than just books and movies for checkout. The new Explore-To-Go kits include games, activities and summer learning kits. Each library has yoga mats, croquet sets, cornhole games, and disc golf. In addition, available later this summer, patrons can check out a learning kit that will include a hands-on learning component, DVDs, books and workbooks on many different subjects. These include geology, anatomy, robotics, sewing, electronics, woodworking, weather and forensics.
The learning kits will be only available at the Peoria Main Library. Items can be checked out for a total of seven days. There is a limit of one kit per family checked out at a time and there is a $1 per day fine if overdue.
