How much do the science kits cost....??

Dear Circ,

I was in this week with my little girl. She loved the carrots by the way. A library employee was telling me about National Library Week, and the celebration and the new science kits you all have. My daughter and I went upstairs, and while I was up there I took a look at the kits. My little girl may be just the right age for some of the "early" kits, certainly the insect and building kits. If not now, 6 months from now, they mature so fast at that age, and she's a smart one. Anyway, while I was in the library, I neglected to ask, how much do the kits cost? Right now, it might be difficult for us, if they're too costly.

Dear Dad,

The kits don't cost anything to use. We're a lending library and we let you check them out, just like a book or a movie. You check out a kit for two weeks, and then return it. If there are no holds on the kit you have, you can renew it for two more weeks.

There is no cost to our cardholders unless something is returned late, or damaged, also just like a book or a movie. If a part for a kit is damaged, we'll assess the cost to replace the part. The late fee is hefty for the kits, $1 a day, primarily because we expect them to be in high demand, so remember to return them on time, take good care of the parts, and there won't be any cost to you. We hope you and your daughter have a great time!


Dear Readers,
Are you wondering about the image above? No, these people are not "Dear Circ" and are not employed by the Roselle Public Library. Nor are they patrons of ours. And neither of the people are famous authors. But it is an image from a famous movie, and the original story (from which the movie screenplay was adapted) was written by a famous children's author. Place your mouse cursor on the photo for the names of the actors, and the author of the original book. Left click the image for an enlargement. For more information about the author, go here, and for more information about the book, go here. For items to check out, try our catalog.
