The Storybook Project allows local volunteers to go into the North Central Unit of the Arkansas Department of Correction in Calico Rock.  The volunteers help inmates choose a book and record the inmate reading the book.  The cd is then mailed, along with the book, to the inmates child so they get to have their incarcerated parent read to them.  It helps families stay connected and fosters a love for reading.  The Storybook Project is a special project of the Calico Rock Museum Foundation.
