Bring Tiny Tails to Your Local Library

We're excited to announce that Tiny Tails to You has been included in Texas Commission of the Arts 2020-2022 Touring Roster! This means big savings for Texas Public Libraries.

Out of all of my favorite hobbies, animals and books definitely top the list. That's one of the reasons why I'm so honored that Tiny Tails to You just landed a spot on the Texas Commission of the Arts touring roster for 2020-2022. Thank you, TCA!

So, what does this mean? I'm glad you asked! Starting now, local libraries that receive TCA grant program funding have the option to provide their community with fun and educational animal programming from Tiny Tails to You.

Animal fun for groups of all sizes

We offer in-person or live-streamed performance options to provide amazing storytelling shows that bring the animal world to life for audiences of all ages. We recommend our 50-minute virtual library program for unlimited guests. Participants get to meet amazing animals, ask questions about our furry and scaled friends, participate in game show style animal fact quizzes, and watch animals move, eat and even wear tiny hats. This offering was designed specifically for libraries so they can continue to offer interesting and engaging content while ensuring the safety of their communities during Covid-19.

“You were seriously AMAZING! What a marathon too. I couldn’t believe how fast the hour flew by – maybe it was partly the rapid-fire chat window but really I think it was all the engaging content you rolled out with those animals. To be honest – I never would have expected that a virtual program could be that compelling but the animal close-ups, the responsive time given to each question, the fun polls, watching them eat and run and dust bath: You were like a hill country David Attenborough and I couldn’t have loved it more.”

-Cate Sweeney,
Public Services Manager, Bee Cave Public Library
