Library of Things

“Action Packs”


In 2018, the library received a grant from Healthy Kids Power Off and Play to assemble Action Packs to encourage children to put down their screens and devices and play and interact with real people, family and friends.  Due to this, the library loans out games and toys for all ages, cooperative board games, bingo, outdoor games such as Yardzee and badminton, musical items, knitting looms, bug watching kits and so much more.

In 2019, the library received a grant from the Brockville and Area Community Foundation to compile Action Packs for seniors.  These items expanded our lending library to encourage senior library patrons to try new things and be as independent as possible.  This grant allowed us to purchase items to loan out such as walking poles, jar openers, grabber tools, blood pressure monitor, dexterity kit, car assist handle, light therapy lamp, car code reader, Nix colour sensor and more.

We continue to add to these collections and seek out donations, collaborations and grant opportunities to help fund these plans.  Winter of 2021 we received a donation of 4 sets of snowshoes from the Front of Yonge Recreation Committee to loan out to our patrons.  We just received 4 Pickleball paddles with balls to loan out and are expecting more at a later date.

Come on in to the library or give us a call to find out more.
