Nature Packs

Explore your Community with a Nature Pack!

You can be a nature explorer with a Nature Pack available at the Nashville Public Library! Each Nature Pack includes materials and activities to get outside and connect with nature. Co-created with the Cumberland River Compact Education and Engagement team and the Nashville Public Library staff, these Nature Packs are designed for children and their families. You can check them out at the Donelson, Goodlettsville, and Southeast Library branches or place a hold and have them delivered to your local branch.
