The Daniel Boone Regional Library has circulating educational art kits as part of a partnership with the St. Louis Art Museum. As one of four satellite resource centers in Missouri, these museum “touch kits” are available to be checked out to interested individuals, teachers and groups. The kits are available for a three-week check-out period by calling or e-mailing the Outreach Department  located in the Columbia Public Library.
Each kit includes replicas of art objects and artifacts which can be handled and looked at up close, as well as slide kits, posters, books and either audiocassettes or videos. Our newest touch kit is about the arts of China and Japan. DBRL also has kits covering the following themes:
- American Indian Art
- American Colonial Art
- American Folk Art
- American Westward Movement
- African Art
- The Ancient Mediterranean World
- Preschool Art Access
This expanded distribution of the museum's resources through community partnerships is intended to strengthen arts education programs, increase awareness of the visual arts and broaden the audience for the museum's collection.
The Saint Louis Art Museum  is one of the country's leading art museums with more than 100 galleries and a collection of more than 30,000 art treasures from ancient times to the present. The museum also houses Richardson Memorial Library, the largest public center for the history and documentation of art in the central Midwest.
