The Calvert Woman’s Club update for 2019: Many positive activities happened. Two University of Texas students, Amanda & Anthony, were doing a project on historical structure and they chose the Katy Hamman-Stricker Library. They visited several times and were quite impressed after studying the book collection and the architectural design of the library. The students presented the Woman’s Club with their desertification which has caused other universities to be interested in visiting in 2020. The Polar Express was fun with the students from the University of Texas attending the first Saturday. They assisted with games, singing, picture painting, and story reading, especially The Polar Express. The fun also included Finding the Elf on the shelf and last but not least, always snacks. The Calvert residents in assisted living facilities were all taken a poinsettia, and as always enjoy the visits. Mr. Arnold and the students at Calvert ISD were so appreciative to receive a contribution for the Videotography Department. 2019 was quite a successful year. The library invites all to come the first Saturday of each month, check out a book, enjoy the collection of historical books or just come tour the beautiful historical library. Thank you for your continued support of the Calvert Woman’s Club.
