Library Learning Bags: Community Pride

Stop by any of our six branches to pick up a Library Learning Bag. This month's bag contains several activities including materials to make a pinwheel.  Thank you to our community partners RICA (Resilient Identity Community Alliance)--a program of ¡Al Éxito¡ and Iowa Queer Communities of Color--an initiative of the Office of Latino Affairs for donating items to this bag.  The Library Learning Bags are intended for ages 5-12 and are an opportunity for your child to enjoy open-ended creativity. Tag your projects on Instagram @desmoineslibrary or Facebook @dmlib. The Library Learning Bag supplies are limited and are intended to be used with adult supervision.
