The calendar has monthly themes that highlight videos, suggested books, songs, and activities for each day. In addition, information about family health and wellness, literacy and creativity, and ideas for exploring Ohio are easily accessible on the website.

“We are excited about making this tool available to support families, educators, and librarians as they engage with young children to help them develop the early literacy skills needed to prepare for and succeed in school,” expressed State Librarian Beverly Cain.

Day By Day Ohio is a customization of a project of the South Carolina State Library, developed in partnership with many agencies and organizations, and primarily funded by a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS).

“We are grateful to our friends at the South Carolina State Library for sharing and allowing us to customize the project they developed,” said Cain. “We are also deeply grateful to the members of the Ohio Ready to Read Task Force, who spent months reviewing each daily calendar page and recommending updates and additions.  I’d also like to personally acknowledge the work of the State Library’s IT, Youth Services, and Marketing staff for their hard work in bringing this project to life.”
