All of the kits listed below are available for borrowing free of charge, to organizations or individuals through your local library or the MVLS catalog.
Bi-Folkal kits are multi-media, multisensory programs that come with a “how to do it guide” which contains step-by-step instructions for a successful program. A variety of slides, audio-cassettes, videos, skits, scent stickers, booklets, and props are included on various topics to spark memories and promote discussion. Consider them for older adults and intergenerational programs where you want to encourage people to reminisce and share stories.
Bi-Folkal Mini-Kits are designed for a shorter program. You’ll still find a media presentation and a leader’s guide stuffed with program ideas and discussion topics but you’ll have to gather most of your own things to touch and make your own photocopies.
Slideas – slides + ideas = sly DEE ahz! Slideas are great for programs and visits with older adults and between generations. Each kit includes slides, a script to read with the slides, related activities, and discussion starters.
