How can I get a GrandKit?
Geared towards grandparents but available to everyone, GrandKits can be borrowed for three weeks with your DCLS library card. Simply go to your local library and ask for a GrandKit. If that library does not have the GrandKit theme you want, you can request a GrandKit from another library to be sent to your local library. It usually takes several days, and your local library will call you to pick up your GrandKit when it arrives there.

Thanks to a grant of $40,000 from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, DCLS was able to compile 300 GrandKits to send to its 28 member libraries in 2004.

For more information about borrowing a GrandKit with your DCLS library card, contact your local library.
