Explore. Discover. Investigate.
The library is ready to help families to discover and learn about nature, whether it be exploring the backyard or hiking a local park. Check out the library’s Nature Backpacks and embark on an adventure with real hands-on tools that kids can use in the field like true scientists. Thanks to donations from the Friends of the Stillwater Public Library, the kid-sized packs contain binoculars, compass, tape measure, colored pencils, Washington County Park information, Minnesota nature guides and more. Borrow a pack today and let the fun begin!
In addition to Nature Backpacks, the library also has books and handouts about nature exploration on display. Supplement your outdoor adventure with some nature reading. Here’s a link to a book list of handpicked titles.
Nature Backpacks have a two-week loan period with an option to renew if no one is waiting. Check on availability by asking at the Public Services Desk.
