Library/Facility BACKPACK - Reminiscence Therapy - The 1950s DVD & Photo/Activity Cards Kit
We have added a backpack for our 1950s Collection to assist those who want to build their own kits. The front pocket houses both the DVD and Photo/Activity cards, but also had a large main pocket to add complimenting items such as books, puzzles, figures, tactile objects or other items. There are also two smaller zipper pockets, one on each side. It will also ease in the shelving of the kit in libraries or on your book shelves. The backpack is the perfect addition to the kit when it will be checked out by patrons or travel between facilities.
