Children & Youth Partnership for Dare County's Play & Learn Library is full of themed activity tubs, big books, and CD's available for check-out for two weeks at no cost. An Ellison Machine (list of cutouts) with a large variety of die cuts is available for use at the office, as well as a laminator (user must provide laminating pouches).

Our materials are available at the Children & Youth Partnership office during office hours, Monday-Thursday: 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. Community members are welcome to come and enjoy a quiet place to play while selecting the perfect materials to check out.

Available kits are based on themes such as the Farm, Community Helpers, Outdoor Play and Nature, Active Play, Ocean Life, Senses, and much more. Each kit is filled with appropriate play and learning items, such as puzzles, puppets, books, games, and activities. Also available for check-out are child-sized picnic tables, a toddler-sized balance beam, a dog-shaped bean bag toss, a puppet stage, and more! Materials in the Play & Learn Library are primarily geared towards children ages 0-5 years-old. There are also reference books and teaching materials that address a variety of relevant topics pertaining to young children.
