The Lied Scottsbluff Public Library will be resuming weekly virtual storytimes, beginning Thursday, January 7.
Preschool storytimes are held online every Thursday and start at 10:00 a.m. Storytimes are posted on the Lied Scottsbluff Public Library Facebook page and on the newly created Library Storytime Website ( https://rb.gy/s0jjwc ).
Those unable to view storytime Thursday morning may watch anytime afterward. Individual giveaway packets containing items and resources to promote and support the weekly theme are available for pick-up at the circulation desk from Thursday mornings at 9:00 a.m. through Saturdays at 5:00 p.m.
Library staff encourage parents to visit the library to help their children select and check out library books to enhance their library experience and begin building a foundation for future learning. Theme-related surprises are given to each storytime child who checks out materials. The library is open its regular hours and appointments are not needed. Patrons are required to wear masks
when using the library.
Storytimes are geared primarily to children between the ages of 2 and 6 years of age. However, because the rate of growth and development varies greatly, we encourage parents to determine their child’s readiness for storytime.
Different topics are featured each week and explored through the use of stories, songs, puppetry flannelgraphs, fingerplays, guests, games and other activities.
Brochures containing weekly themes and added information are available for pick-up at the library or can be viewed on the Library Facebook page or the Library Storytime Website. Until they can safely hold storytime in the library meeting room, it is the library staff’s hope that this virtual platform will provide a temporary educational alternative.
