Winter Hours and New Items

Hello PERC patrons! Here's a heads-up for you - PERC is heading into the fall with our winter schedule. After Labor Day, we will be open Mondays 10-4, Tuesdays 10-7, Wednesdays 10-4, Thursdays 10-12, and Saturdays 11-2, closed on Fridays and Sundays.

We've been very busy over the summer lining up new volunteers to replace some we've lost and processing new items. Here are some of our new toys:

This is my favorite because it's so cute. Meet Gizmo, the Hedgecog (entered into our catalog as Hedgehog Gear Set). This item teaches small children about cause and effect by showing them how turning one gear turns them all. The fact that the teeth of the gears are also the spikes of the hedgehog is just icing on the cake. :)
One of the best things about my job is that I get to play with toys! This one, the Balancing Barnyard, is deceptively challenging. Can you get all the animals balanced on the barn without it tipping over? The animals are so cute that your child will be giggling throughout playtime.
These and many other items are available at PERC. You can put any of these items on hold by logging in at If you're not sure how to log in, stop by or call us at 801-229-7390 and we'll give you the information.
