Culture Kits
Culture Kits are a collection of tangible items from a country brought to us by international and UNC students. Each item is accompanied by a description highlighting the item's use or significance.

These kits are especially practical for elementary students who have a greater need to touch and see items in order to learn, but are applicable to other grade levels. Click the links in the left sidebar to browse through some of our culture kits by world region. 

Please note: We are constantly updating and enhancing our Culture Kits, which means that not all Kits will be available every semester. Please email us if you have any questions.

Eligible Borrowers 

Educators from any public or private school in North Carolina may borrow materials. Other eligible borrows include UNC faculty, staff, students, alumni and residents of North Carolina. However, educators and Carolina Navigators presenters will be given first priority.

All borrowers must create a profile in our request system before requesting a Culture Kit.

Lending Policies 
Materials are available free of charge (including return postage if materials are received by mail) and may be borrowed for 30 days, but may be recalled after two weeks for a borrower of priority.

Materials not returned by the assigned due date will accrue fines of $0.50 per day to a maximum overdue fine of $15.00. Items still not returned 30 days after the due date will be assumed lost and borrowers will be charged a fine of $100.00.

If the lost item is returned, the borrower will be charged only for the $15.00 overdue fine. Fines may be paid at the Davis Library Circulation Desk on the UNC campus.

Materials may be renewed for two week intervals, provided they have not been requested by other borrowers.

To Request an Item 
Create a profile in our online request system. Then request your Culture Kit. Each kit request must be submitted separately. 

Requests for materials should be submitted **at least** two weeks before your intended usage date.

From a teacher...

The teachers and students of Tabernacle Elementary School wish to thank you so much for arranging the wonderful presentation of musical instruments from the Andes.

Jeff and Brenden were superb in their presentation. The teachers were impressed with how (they) related to the different ages of the students.

They commented on the level of professionalism that Jeff and Brenden brought to the presentation.
