Each week in the month of June, our Youth Services staff will be sharing a fun craft or STEM activity online, intended for students entering grades K-5 in the fall.

Register to pick up one of these activity bags that will hold the supplies for the 4 activities in June. Curbside pick-up will be located across the street from the library, in the parking lot of the Waukee Middle School. Library staff will be wearing gloves and masks during distribution.
