Library Learning Bags: Pet Edition
Stop by Curbside or DMPL Express Service at any of our six branches to pick up a Library Learning Bag. This month's bag includes an opportunity to create a snuffle mat and cat toys.  These can be returned in the included envelope through the book drop at any DMPL location or used with your own pets.  All collected items will be sent to the Animal Rescue League of Iowa or AHeinz57.  The toys created are for supervised pet play only and will not be a good option for strong chewers. 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.
