Early Literacy Kits

Early Literacy Kits (ELK Bags) Logo

ELK bags are a great way for you to take story time and learning home from the library. They are filled with books and interactive toys that child can use to build those crucial early literacy skills. Each bag has a theme and also comes with a sheet full of useful tips on how to use the items in the bag.

This project is made possible by several generous grants from the Lyche family, General Mills, and the Daybreak Rotary Club. We are so thankful for their support!

Each kit checks out for 3 weeks and cannot be renewed so more families get a chance to play with them. Please be sure to return them to the Marion Public Library Children's Desk so we can make sure all pieces are accounted for before they are checked in.
