The library has bird watching kits available for check out. Included in the kit are a backpack, binoculars, field guides, a checklist of common birds, and a journal for kids to make notes about what they saw. The backpacks are located in the children’s library. Bird watching is a great hobby for kids (or anyone) to take up. It costs nothing, can last a lifetime, and you don’t have to go any farther than your own backyard!
