Children’s Programming


“Traveling Tales”

“Traveling Tales” is one of our preschool outreach programs at the library, furnished to local daycare providers who wish to participate in the program.  Books are selected by library staff, checked out to the daycare providers, and along with simple activities and/or coloring pages, are distributed to the day-cares in Calmar in bright, colorful book bags, delivered by library staff every other week.  These books can then be used by the daycare providers to read to little ones while in their care, or be sent home with children to be returned to the provider when they are finished with them.  Library staff then retrieves the book bags, checks the books back into the library and provides a new supply of books, beginning the process again.
