Stop by Curbside Service at any of our six branches to pick up a Library Learning Bag full of assorted materials to keep you creative as you head into fall, along with a new book courtesy of the Des Moines Public Library Foundation!  The suggested age for the bags is 5-12 and are intended for you or your child to use in open-ended creativity.  Tag your projects on Instagram @desmoineslibrary or supplement your supplies at home. 

The Library Learning Bags will be available from Monday, September 21, through the end of the month, while supplies last.
