If you or your group would like a tour of one of the libraries, we would be happy to show you around. Tours can be customized to feature demonstrations of resources such as the online catalog, reference databases and various specialized collections and services.

Library Will Travel

Speakers from the library can be scheduled to talk to your group about libraries and library services. The Daniel Boone Regional Library encourages a love of reading that extends beyond the library’s walls.

We recommend that you contact us four weeks in advance about visiting your school or organization, as we consider requests in order of submission.

Guest Reader
A staff member can read to your class as part of a read-a-thon, mystery reader day or other reading-focused event.

Literacy Night
We’ll bring “Family Story Time” to your location and talk about other literacy activities coming up at the library. Most story times last 20-30 minutes and can be tailored to families with kids from birth through fifth grade.

Library Information Table
We’ll set up a table where kids and their families can fill out library card applications and learn more about special library events. With a library card, families gain access to items at any of our three libraries and bookmobiles as well as services through our website.

Bookmobile

Bookmobile
Either of our two bookmobiles can be requested to make an appearance at your event. Each vehicle comes loaded with books, music CDs, DVDs and more.

Spring All-School Assemblies
Each summer we offer Summer Reading programs for all grades, and welcome the opportunity to make a 10-minute presentation during your school assembly or staff meeting in the spring.

Presentations
The library can provide a guest speaker for your organization, class or event to present on various services and programs for adults, such as: computer classes and technology in the library; One Read, our community-wide reading program; our digital branch; Adult Summer Reading; and more.

Workshops
Our librarians present two adult instructional workshops on how to improve childhood literacy.

  • Every Child Ready to Read - This training session focuses on early literacy skills for children from birth through age 5.
  • Read From the Start - This Missouri Humanities Council grant-funded program presents ways to share books with young children. It involves a two-night commitment over three to four weeks and requires a two-month advance notice. Participants receive seven free books. Minimum class of 15.
