Libraries Host Live-Streamed Children’s Programs In October

Fort Bend County Libraries’ (FBCL) youth-services programming will be presented in virtual format rather than in-person so that families can enjoy them online and participate from home. These virtual activities will take place online; they will NOT be in person at the library.

The October schedule of online Family Story Time programs will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:15 am. They will be live-streamed on the “FBCL Virtual Programs & Educational Resources” Facebook group page.

If families are unable to watch the live-streamed programs, the sessions will be recorded and available for viewing on the Youth Virtual Programs page of the FBCL website on the following Tuesday/Thursday.

Family Story Time includes stories, songs, and action rhymes that children of all ages can enjoy. The schedule for October is as follows:

October 5 – Colors

October 7 – Pumpkins

October 12 – Bath Time

October 14 – Oceans

October 19 – Rhymes

October 21 – Monsters

October 26 – Pets

October 28 – Forest/Night Animals

Families with infants 1-12 months of age can practice their early-literacy skills by watching the pre-recorded Little Bits video episodes that will become available online on Wednesdays. In these videos, library staff demonstrate rhymes and songs for parent/child activity time at home. The videos will be posted on the Youth Virtual Programs page on the FBCL website, where they can be viewed at any time.

A collection of virtual youth programs continues to be available on the Fort Bend County Libraries Youth Services YouTube channel. Pre-recorded activities for different age ranges are available for viewing at any time.

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