Building upon the strong community response to the Coalition hosted workshops on technology, the Lethbridge Coalition saw the need to build adult capacity in this area. Inspired by a Central Alberta Coalition, they developed Digital Play Packs to help increase understanding of the importance of the balance between technology and active play to shape healthy brains, build resilience and strength bonds with caregivers. Partners include the Lethbridge Library who have the Science Magic and Superhero Digital Play Packs in circulation and additional funding from Rotary to build eight additional Digital Play Packs. In 2017, four new themes included: Nature Play, Physical Literacy and Hide and Seek.

Helen Schuler Nature Centre is creating the Nature Play theme and Lethbridge Sport Council is creating the Physical Literacy DPPs. It has been a great avenue to create new collaborative partners in the community through these DPPs. The Coalition Coordinator also was invited to speak at the Southern Alberta Library Conference about the DPPs, EDI connections and our provincial coalition work. This came full circle when librarians and other Coalitions in the region worked together to create their own for their communities!
