Programming Kits


Need help with library programming?  Need ideas and supplies?  Shortgrass has created a variety of programming kits now available to member libraries for borrowing.  To request a kit, simply place a hold on the one you desire in WorkFlows using your library account.  To ensure your requested kit is available when you need it, be sure to place your hold well in advance of your programming date and it will be sent to you with the regular deliveries.

You can locate these kits in WorkFlows by searching for the corresponding Item ID numbers listed for each one below.  Alternatively, you can perform a keyword title search for “programming kit” under “Item Search and Display” in WorkFlows.
