Experience To Go Kits are created to help you pursue your best life and try something new. The Screen-Free Summer Kit is filled the tools to fill your day without staring at a screen. We’ve included a book of activities and games from the pre-screen era, a deck of cards, dice, a notebook, and a bag full of things to do to chase away boredom.

If you can’t make it to the library to get a kit, but want to plan some screen-free fun, here are some great resources to get you started:

  • Don’t forget your 62 Days of Summer starter kit!
  • Discover Magazine, a guide to fun and learning in the township, courtesy of Canton Leisure Services.
  • Michigan Adventure Pass– use your library card to check out free and reduced admission to attractions across the state, as well as select Michigan State parks and National Park Service sites.
  • Of course, the library is full of books to help you plan out some screen-free time!

Fifty years ago today, more than 400,000 people gathered on farmland in Bethel, NY for "three days of peace and music", and witnessed music history. "Woodstock" became famous for capturing the music, politics, and culture of the time. Capture the spirit of '69 with classic rock and folk from the Woodstock festival (without the crowds or the mud!) from your computer or mobile device, available any time with Hoopla or Alexander Street Press streaming music services.

Spring is here! The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the end of the school year is in sight-but it's no time to stop learning. The Engage Your Brain Experience To Go Kit offers myriad ways to grow and stretch that space between your ears, to learn new things, and keep your mind sharp so you can live your best life. Try seven days of brain teasers, or a stimulating game of Set, or a well-crafted musical composition to promote brain health and keep you sharp. 

If you're looking for a more social way to sharpen your wits, please join us for Trivia Night at the Library! Bring a team or make new friends by joining someone else. It's tons of fun, and a great way to put that random knowledge to work in a fun and relaxed environment. 

When the weather outside is frightful, the Library has you covered. Check out entertaining and educational video from the library without leaving the comfort of your home, with streaming video from Kanopy or Hoopla (or both!). These services offer movies and television for all ages, and its content is always available with your CPL card. 

Did you know that Kanopy Kids specializes in curating collections of mindful entertainment for developing minds? Both Kanopy and Hoopla offer a wide assortment of animated children's tales, including classics such as The Snowy Day-one of our favorites! Click here to learn more about Kanopy Kids.
