Let's Play Library launches in Spearfish

Let's Play Library allows children to play sports even if they lack the equipment

Rapid City, S.D. (KOTA TV) To help keep kids active over the summer ... the Spearfish City Park has a way for kids to play even if they lack sports equipment.

The Let's Play Library opened in Spearfish over the 4th of July weekend.

The Let's Play Library motto is to borrow, play, return ... and allows anyone to come and use any of the sports equipment that is in the pantry to play with while they are in the park.

The idea for the pantry was headed by the physical education department at Black Hills State and can lead to a partnership between the students of the school and the youth in the community who come to play.

"To be able to have some of our students within our program to come down here and join up and do some different activities within the park and pair them up with kids will be a great asset to the community." says Dr.Breon Derby

You can also donate gently used sports equipment to the library which is located right in front of the Spearfish City Park.
