Toilet training can be a challenging process for both you and your child.  The Children’s Room has toilet training kits that will help ease you and your child’s anxiety while toilet training: pirate-themed kits, and  princess-themed kits. Each kit includes three books, two DVDs, a folder with a motivational chart, stickers to track your child’s progress, and informational handouts. A potty training kit by be borrowed for two weeks by an adult with a Harborfields library card. These kits are reserved, checked out, and returned in the Children’s Room.

Each themed box kit contains all the tools and materials needed for hands-on experimentation intended to foster creativity in crafting, coding, electronics and more.

Is your family expecting a new baby? Are you concerned with how your firstborn is going to interact with the new baby? Come into the Children’s Room and reserve a “Welcome New Sibling Kit.” Our sibling kits are designed to ease your child’s anxiety concerning the arrival of a new brother or sister.  Included in each kit is an anatomically correct “newborn" doll (your choice: girl or boy, light or dark skin) with clothes, diapers to change, books, pamphlets, and more.

Are you planning a car trip or a long plane ride with your children?  Our popular traveling library is available. We have backpacks filled with books, puzzles, games, and more which will certainly keep your children occupied for many hours as you travel.

Our “Kool Kits” contain activities for children, ages 4 to 12, and may be borrowed from the Children’s Room for a two-week period, on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

When planning your next getaway, take advantage of our Booked-to-Go Kits! Each Booked-to-Go Kit contains books, maps, pamphlets and usually a DVD to help you plan your trip to a specific destination. Harborfields patrons, peruse our online list of Kits or our shelves to find the right one for you!
