Discovery Kits at the Camp Pendleton Libraries
In 2018, the Camp Pendleton Libraries (CPL) assessed the needs of homeschooling families through an anonymous survey. The survey results revealed that CPL homeschoolers needed more than just books to enhance their learning. The creation of Discovery Kits serve these needs and encourage patrons to learn new hobbies, skills, and topics without encountering the financial barriers or commitment involved when learning something new. This project resulted in the creation of 60 Discovery Kits offering a range of themed materials across different ages. They work to enrich the learning endeavors of parents, teachers, homeschoolers, and independent learners in the CPL community.
