Online Story Times

By |2020-12-17T05:00:18-05:00December 17, 2020|

Until we can gather safely together for story time, we’re sharing story times online in a couple of ways. You can join us on Zoom at 10 a.m. every Tuesday for a virtual story time. Please RSVP on our event calendar so you can get the link.

Also, we’ve recorded some story times. And we’re sharing them online, so your family can enjoy them at your convenience. You can watch these story times on our Facebook page, YouTube channel, and right here on this page! We’ll be posting a new one every Monday, starting in January.

By the way, we’re still hosting special programs online. Visit our online event calendar to see them all.
