Circulating Technology and Wellness Kits


Reserve your technology kit today! 

The staff at NEO-RLS are always looking for ways to help the region’s libraries better serve their communities. One of the ways in which we do this is through our Circulating Technology and Wellness Kits. Maximize your ability to provide materials for your customers by borrowing NEO-RLS’s STEAM e-Kits for children, tweens and teens, Health Literacy Kits, VR kits, and so much more. Kits are shipped via UPS at no cost to the library. Please allow at least two weeks for preparation and shipping when reserving a kit.

Reserve a kit here or contact jeff.laser@neo-rls.org for more information.

Please complete an evaluation after you have finished with your circulating emerging technology kit. The evaluation feedback will help us keep the kits relevant and easy to use.  For your convenience, the evaluation will be included with your service contract and is also available here.




The Health Literacy Kits are fully developed adult patron or staff programs that you can take right out of the box and present! Each kit comes with the relevant technology for a hands on experience, a fully-developed and interactive PowerPoint presentation, and health literacy information and handouts. Choose from Digital Fitness, Home Health Technology, Personal Wellness (pictured above), or Preventative Health Technology.

The STEAM e-Kits come jam-packed with the most innovative technology needed to teach science, technology, engineering, art and math in a fun and exciting way. Each kit comes with lesson plans so you can begin teaching fun and directed classes immediately.

We know that one size does not fit all when it comes to technology and learning. Therefore, we created three distinct STEAM e-Kits according to different age groups and learning styles. You can choose from the Children’s Kit, Tween Kit, or the Teen Kit, each with focused-technology to challenge children according to their age and skill level. 
 


The Memory Care Kit: Home Life & Hobbies (partially pictured above) comes with materials and guidelines for six unique activities including birdwatching, stargazing, sock matching, and more. The kit was assembled based upon recommendations from The Dementia Inclusive Public Library Guide from the Ohio Council For Cognitive Health. Memory Care Kits are designed to incorporate activities that utilize the preserved strengths of people living with dementia. The purpose of these activities is to provide meaningful, enjoyable ways for individuals to engage in life while completing familiar tasks that maintain one’s abilities.

The Ozobot Classroom Kit comes with twelve Ozobots and three tablets, everything you need for a collaborative and fun-filled program according to Ozobot.com. Ozobots are unique because they can be used with and without a tablet. In other words, you can teach the coding mindset with just paper and markers. These also come with all the peripheral material needed to charge the device and markers to provide an unplugged or plugged program. 

The VR Game Console Kit comes with everything you need to put on an immersive VR experience. We provide the Playstation 4 console, VR headset, a situational camera, processor, and two types of controllers. One VR Console Kit even comes with a small HD television in case your library does not have access to one.  We include at least twelve games per console so your patrons are bound to find an adventure they are excited to experience!
