Libraries’ Summer Reading Challenge – July Schedule Of Virtual Activities & Performances      

Because of the COVID-19 social-distancing recommendations, Fort Bend County Libraries (FBCL) is offering a different format for Summer Reading Challenge (SRC) programming this year – all activities are presented virtually so that families can participate from the comfort and safety of home!

Videos of Mother Goose Time, Toddler Time, Story Time, and Middle School Programs will be posted on the FBCL website each week. Age-appropriate stories, songs, and puppet shows are featured in the Mother Goose Time and Toddler Time videos, while Middle School Programs include fun craft demonstrations.

The schedule is as follows:

  • Mondays – Mother Goose Time (infants 1-12 months of age)
  • Tuesdays – Toddler Time (1-3 years of age)
  • Thursdays – Middle School Programs (grades 6-8)

Families of toddlers and preschoolers may pick up to-go activity packets from the library for the month. These packets – available for pick up in July — contain fun craft activities that can be done at home.

The School-Age Programs – Wednesdays at 10:00 am – will showcase exciting live-streamed or recorded videos of popular performers that children have grown to love at Fort Bend County Libraries over the years. The live-streamed and recorded videos will be shown on the FBCL website and in a special FBCL Facebook group page for the SRC, located at (
