The kits assist children in developing critical thinking and deductive reasoning skills. The library encourages kids of all ages to explore the STEM fields with a variety of STEM kits for checkout. Because of this, a limited number of items are available for checkout. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of the library administration.•Kits are available at the service desk on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The purpose of an interlibrary loan is to obtain, upon request of a library user, material not available in the user’s local library. It is not meant to replace the library’s material but to expand and enrich it. Winnebago Public Library participates in OCLC WorldShare Interlibrary Loan System. WPL receives interlibrary loan deliveries weekly on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings (excluding holiday and weather related closings). Our Interlibrary Loan Service is ONLY available to WPL resident patrons.
