Did we say free? CASE for Kids provides Lending Library for afterschool programsWe’d like to share our free treasure chest of afterschool resources available to all Harris County out-of-school time programs.

The Lending Library is provided by our division called CASE for Kids and includes tons of materials:


• Resource guides
• Comprehensive curriculum
• Activity books and kits
• Sports and fitness equipment
• Electronics
• Includes a list of free, web-based curriculum and activities

All materials are available for free use on a first-come, first-serve basis to all out-of-school time providers and programs in Harris County that serve youth ages 4-12. Items may be checked out for up to four weeks or longer, depending on some of the comprehensive curriculum.

All you need to do is register as a provider or program. Go to www.afterschoolzone.org/default.aspx?name=Lending_library_homepage for more info.
