LARK: Learning & Reading Kits
Based on best practices for childcare providers and educators, LARKs bring quality literature and interactive learning tools to our state’s youngest residents.
PPL has created 160 Learning and Reading Kits (LARKs) for preschool child care providers and educators. LARKs are thematic kits of early childhood library materials packaged in a plastic tub or tote bag. Each kit is bursting with 10-12 children’s books, music or video, visual aides like puppets and flannel boards, and a wealth of hands-on fun — games, puzzles, toys, costumes, posters and much more! An activity folder in each kit offers you a choice of activities/ideas, helping you to effectively teach thematic curriculum units in a developmentally appropriate way.
Borrowing LARK Kits
To borrow a LARK you must apply for teacher privileges at PPL. Bring a personal ID and verification of your current employment (i.e., statement on agency/school letterhead signed by the director/principal) to the Library to apply for teacher privileges.
