Torrance Library is taking learning to the next level with SMART cases.

These bright orange cases are boxed kits that include science activities and supplementary materials for youth. SMART stands for Science, Math, Activity, Reading and Teaching.

Topics include astronomy, the human body, earthquakes, oceans and more. They are geared to specific grade levels and are designed to be used one-on-one, in small groups or even classroom settings.

The cases can be checked out for up to three weeks by an adult at the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library and can be requested at any Torrance library.

The cases were purchased with funds donated by the Torrance Refining Company.
