The library is rolling out a brand new program. We’re building an online storytime collection. As part of that initiative, we’re offering online storytime recordings free to anyone who would like to donate a few minutes and read a story. Originally, we created this program as we heard that grandparents, unable to travel or socialize, missed interacting with their grandchildren. We wanted to help them connect while at a distance. Storytimes are great for promoting early literacy and online storytimes help us all feel more connected from a distance.
Giving the gift of a story is easy. Book an appointment to read your favorite story. We’ll record your reading and turn it into a virtual storytime. Your storytime is a gift to the library and will be added to the library’s YouTube channel for others to enjoy. As an added bonus, the library will provide you with a direct link to your storytime so you can easily share it with your loved ones on social media, email, or even by text message.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive more information and to set up an appointment to have your story recorded via Zoom.
