Libraries around the world have always offered non-traditional items in their collections. The South Burlington Public Library has enhanced this collection in recent months, thanks to some key donations and staff energy. We have added to our collection of killo-watt measuring devices and blood pressure monitors so that we now offer a bike helmet, a 16mm projector, a slide projector, a fold up screen, two ukuleles, a few CD players, DVD players, binoculars and a metal detector. Some of these are in "kits" that also offer additional activity ideas, related books and sometimes supplies. In addition to the ukulele and bird watching kits, check out the jump rope kit, the jewelry making kit and the LEGO kit. Look for all these items on the shelves near the Parenting Collection.
