Active living kits are available immediately in the library catalog.

What are active living kits and what do I need to know when checking them out?

Active living kits include the supplies/equipment needed for various fun games and sports (see the list below).

Check them out for three weeks. Return them when the library is open, as they won’t fit in the exterior returns.

These kits were made possible with funds from the Chisago County Statewide Health Improvement Partnership (SHIP) Grant.
