Grab & Go
Jack & the Beanstalk

Children Registration Drop-in

Parents and their children can share the story of "Jack and the Beanstalk" together at home and then plant their own bean with supplies and instructions provided in a take-home kit by the library! 

As part of our Summer Library Program of "Imagine Your Story," budding green thumbs (or their parents) can pick up a kit at the library that includes a bean seed and other supplies, along with instructions to get it growing. You can also watch a recording of "Jack and the Beanstalk," read by library staff below!

We're still taking physical distancing precautions to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus, so these projects will be available for curbside pickup or during in-person appointments at MCPL branches. Grab and go projects will be available at different MCPL locations during specific weeks, so check out the website or give your home library a call to see when the kits will be available. Please limit one kit per child, available while supplies last. For more information, contact us.
