Explore-To-Go @ The Peoria Public Libraries

Have you heard? The library has a new collection: Explore-To-Go! The first type of Explore-To-Go kits are games and activities for playing at the park. Each library has yoga mats, croquet sets, cornhole games, and disc golf. Patrons can check one out at their local Peoria Public Library and enjoy them while at one of Peoria's beautiful parks!

The second type of Explore-To-Go kits focuses on learning. Patrons can check out a kit that will include a hands-on learning component, DVDs, books, and workbooks on many different subjects. These include but aren’t limited to geology, anatomy, robotics, sewing, electronics, woodworking, weather, and forensics. The learning kits will be only available at the Peoria Main Library.
 

How It Works:

  • Items check out for 7 days - no renewals are provided for items.
  • Items need to be checked out and returned to the circulation desk. Please do not use book drops.
  • There is a limit of 1 kit per family checked out at a time.
  • There is a $1.00 per day fine if overdue.
  • You must be an adult (18+) and use your own library card to check out a kit.
  • Please return the kit to the same location that it was checked out from.
  • Clean the equipment after use. Please use a disinfectant wipe or wet paper towel. Do not soak the items in bleach or in a soapy water tub as this may damage the kit.
  • Please inform library staff of any issues found while using the kit.
