Adventure Kits

Let the Lafayette Public Library add ADVENTURE to your life! Check out an Adventure Kit today.
Each Adventure Kit is like a library program in a box that patrons can check out. We’ve collected some of the best adventures we could think of, such as going on an outdoor excursion or exploring a local farm, and created Adventure Kits, available for checkout at any Lafayette Public Library location.










Patrons can get ready to dig deep into science, outdoors, tech, crafts, and early literacy. All Adventure Kit boxes come complete with hands-on activities, companion books, and an inventory list to easily keep track of items. These kits were created for all age groups and offer a variety of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) themes. There are 40 kits with 16 different themes ready to test out.

The kits range from early literacy (Rhyme Time kits and On the Farm kits) to science-themed (Microscope kit and Human Body kits) to technology (Inventor LittleBits kits and Synth LittleBits kits) to outdoor fun (Bird Watching kits and Metal Detecting kits).

The Bird Watching Adventure Kit, for example, contains everything you need to spot birds from a safe distance in the great outdoors, including binoculars, field guides, and Louisiana Bird books. The Metal Detector Adventure Kit includes a metal detector, fully charged battery, and a helpful book about metal detecting (sorry, no treasure maps).

One Adventure Kit per library card can be checked out for 28 days. Currently, kits may not be renewed. Adults/parents/caregivers only may check kits out. They must be returned to the circulation desk; they cannot be returned through the book drop or drive-thru. Each kit contains an inventory list of the included items.

Browse the Adventure Kits below, then click on each link to our catalog to see which kits are available, and what is on display at which branch. Holds can be placed for kits to be delivered to any branch.

Adventure Kits were brought to Lafayette Public Library patrons through a generous donation from Cox Communications.
