California State Library Grant
Utilizing a $248,969.00 grant from the California State Library, we will engage families through the Libraries in Calaveras County:
• Expand children’s programming system-wide to include:
Yoga for kids
Zumba for kids
A library garden
Nutrition & cooking classes for children and families
• Watch-n-Grow database from Scholastic
• Ready Rosie school readiness program for parents and children, both for children
PreK–Grade 3 and more
• Purchase a Bookmobile to enable us to take programming and books to
unreached areas of our county
The Friends of the Calaveras County Library and other partners will help
us raise $50,000 for a 20% match for this grant.
Lunch at the Library
Using USDA money designated for school lunches, we are planning to offer free lunch and summer reading activities in San Andreas and West Point this summer. The State Library will give us $8,000 to assist with planning, delivery and programming.
