STEAMKITS are funded by generous donations from community businesses. STEAMKITS are focused on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and/or Math. The kits circulate for 7 days and have an overdue fine of $0.25/day. They may be checked out only in West Bend, and returned to the West Bend circulation desk during normal business hours. The kits may not be returned in the book drop. There is a limit of TWO STEAMKITS per library card.
