Take It & Make It


DTDL offers free monthly Take It & Make It kits for kids and adults, available to pick up in the library or with
carside pickup.  We offer four types of kits, with activities appropriate for different ages and skill levels (5 & under, 5-8, 9-18, and 18+).  Kits may include arts & crafts, STEM, and/or literacy activities.  Each kit contains instructions and supplies for one or more projects.   

August Kits 

Ages 5 & under: Paper Turtle craft
Ages 5-8: Yarn Animal Tails craft
Ages 9-18: Folded Book Animal project
Adult (18+): Shapeable Paper Leaves project 
(Please note: All kits are available while supplies last and different activities may be substituted.) 

A note to parents and caregivers: You know your child(ren) best. Feel free to pick the kit that you feel will be most appropriate for their skill level.  Adult supervision/participation is encouraged. 

Kit Request

To request a Take It & Make It kit for yourself, or kits for your family, please fill out this form. 
(Please note: We have a new form for the summer which allows you to request all our summer kits with one form.  If you only want Take It & Make It kits, simply skip the other sections of the form.)  Take It & Make It kits are now also available to request and pick up at the library's Youth Desk.

Each kit contains supplies for one person.  Please limit your request to one kit per person, per month.  If you enjoy your kit, please come back the following month to request a different kit.  New kits will be available on the first of each month. 

After submitting a request, library staff will call you when your kit(s) are ready for pickup (generally 1-3 business days).  Please pick up your kit(s) within 10 business days of receiving your pickup notification. 

In need of art supplies?
  Our Take It & Make It kits provide most of the supplies needed for each project, but may require you to have scissors, drawing supplies, and glue or tape.  If you are in need of these items, we can provide your family with a free children’s art supplies kit, which you can also request with the form.
