RULA staff believe that libraries – of all kinds – are for everyone. In that spirit, we are pleased to announce a new initiative to offer parents who bring their kids with them to the library a helping hand to keep them occupied: the Busy Box!
The Busy Box comes customized for three different age groups:
Each box contains three age appropriate books, various activities and small toys to keep little hands busy so that parents can attend to their own work while in the library, if only just for a short while.
Loan periods are limited to four hours. Crafts and art that your children create with the supplies are theirs to take home, but otherwise we ask parents or caregivers to do their best to ensure the contents of the boxes are kept intact. We ask that Busy Boxes remain onsite and are returned once you are finished with them.
