What Are Program Packs?

Program Packs are group activity kits that prompt interaction and conversation. Armed with a Program Pack, leaders can conduct fun-filled activities with little or no preparation.

There are two kinds of packs available: Bi-Folkal Kits, which have reminiscence themes, and Discovery Kits on the Lewis and Clark Expedition.

The check-out period for Program Packs is four weeks; this may be extended on request if the kit has not been reserved by another user.

What Items Come in a Program Pack?

Each pack is filled with various multi-sensory items and fun activities like:

  • Slide-show with cassette narration; show and narration usually repeated on videotape
  • Tactile objects to touch
  • Pictures to discuss
  • Scents to smell
  • Songs for sing-alongs and music to accompany discussion
  • Scripts for skits
  • Recipes for snacks
  • Word games
  • Paper crafts
  • Leader's manual full of suggestions

How Do I Receive a Program Pack?

Wolfner ships the Program Packs to users free-of-charge, but borrowers must pay the return shipping fee .

Because of the high demand for Program Packs, borrowers are allowed only one kit at a time.

You can reserve a specific kit for a certain period, or just receive Program Packs as they are available and your schedule allows.

For more information, or to request a kit, contact the Reader Advisor for Institutions.
