Take and Make Kits

Check out our Monthly Take & Make Craft Kits!

RESERVE A KIT: 780.985.3472 or email circulation@calmarpubliclibrary.ca

The library will have a new craft or project kit for teens, tweens, and pre-k children available each month. Some of these kits have video tutorials that will be released on both our Facebook page and YouTube channel.


KIT ELIGIBILITY

All individuals wishing to reserve Take & Make kits must have a library card registered at the Calmar Public Library. If you do not have one already, it is free to register—all we need is a completed application form and a piece of valid government issued photo ID with a Calmar or Leduc County area address! Library card applications can be completed in person at the library or by contacting us via email at circulation@calmarpubliclibrary.ca.

Take & Make Kits are limited each month to one kit per child, per household. While kits are divided by target age group, please feel free to choose the kit your child is most interested in. If you are interested in additional kits, you can request to be put on the Waitlist. If additional kits become available, library staff will contact individuals on the Waitlist in the order they joined.


HOW IT WORKS

Our Take & Make kits are free! There are a limited number of kits available each month, and available while supplies last. We cannot guarantee how long kits will be available for each month, and highly recommend reserving kit(s) as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

Kit reservation will become available on the first day of every month. Reserving a previous kit will not guarantee reservation of future kits. Library staff are unable to accept reservation requests prior to the first day of the month, and will require the following information to reserve a kit:

  • Name of parent or guardian
  • Contact Information (phone or email)
  • Proof of Calmar Public Library membership (eg. library barcode)
  • Name of kit(s)
  • Number of kits

Library staff cannot reserve a kit without all of this information, and are unable to "hold" kits if a reservation request is incomplete. Library staff will confirm when your kits have been successfully reserved, and confirm the date(s) that your reserved kit(s) will be available to pick-up.

Currently, our Take & Make kits will be available on the first Monday of each month. If you are unable to pick up your reserved kit within two weeks (and have not contacted the library to make arrangements) of their release, your kit will be considered unclaimed and your reservation will be cancelled. After two weeks have passed, we will contact individuals on the Waitlist if there are any kits left unreserved or if reserved kits are unclaimed.
