Reserve your studio time today!

The library has partnered with North High School to make these professional quality kits available to the public at no cost.

• Customers must be at least 18 and have a library card to check out a kit. Borrowers may supervise equipment use by younger customers.
• Kits may only be used in-library Mondays (10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Tuesdays through Thursdays (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.), dependent on availability.
• Only one kit may be checked out at a time.

For more information or to check out a kit, email or call Information & Reference at 715-839-5004.

These kits were funded in part with a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services which administers the Library Services and Technology Act(LSTA).
