We are officially out of Spring Break backpacks. Thank you for participating and we hope you having a great spring break!

The Louisville Free Public Library wants to make this Spring Break a “screen break,” by encouraging kids and caregivers to get outside, away from their TVs and computer screens. Starting March 22, families can pick up a free Spring Break backpack from any LFPL location (while supplies last).

Each backpack will include activities families can do together in their backyard, at the park, or wherever their spring break adventures take them! Then, from March 29 – April 3, the included Field Guide will feature a different topic and set of activities to do that day—from nature exploration to outdoor art to suggested reading lists.

Special nature-inspired Book Bundles are also available by request and can be customized based on a child’s age, interest, and reading level. Simply visit to order in advance.
