The Catawba County Library System would like to invite you to take advantage of the free services that we offer to daycares:
  • Bookbaggers is an easy way to provide books for classroom use. Each month our staff carefully selects age-appropriate books that can be used and enjoyed by both children and teachers. The convenient canvas red bags contain 15 books each, and are checked out to daycare centers for 30 days. Each month when you return your bag, there will be another waiting. This program requires a sign-up and a commitment from someone at your center to pickup and return these books each month during regular library hours. Book bags will be ready by the first week of each month.
  • Books on special themes are available upon request. All of our libraries will be happy to pull materials for your center. We only ask that you call a day before you need to pick up your books.
  • Library tours and special story times are always available. (Libraries make great field trips!)
