Go! Kits

Go! Kits are backpacks developed by Montgomery County Public Libraries (MCPL) and recommended for children in two age groups — 3-6 years old and 7-12 years old. The kits are designed to encourage the parent/caregiver and child to actively explore the world around them.

This project was funded by the  Friends of the Library, Montgomery County (FOLMC) to get kids excited about science and math.

Kit Contents

Each kit contains several books, science tools, a Playaway Launchpad or Samsung Galaxy Tab A with recommended apps, and a listing of the contents of the kit. Some kits also contain an educational DVD. Each kit can be borrowed for 2 weeks and must be returned to the borrowing branch.
