DIY Collection

The Discover It Yourself (DIY) collection is a bunch of unique items that you can check out with your library card and take home to use. Items may be as small as a card game or as large as a telescope. This collection is for all ages. It's your chance to try out a unique, large, or even pricey item before you decide to buy it yourself!

Enjoy trying out something new for 3 weeks!
