Libraries Host Virtual Children’s Programs In November

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

All activities will be pre-recorded videos that will be posted online on the Youth Virtual Programs page on the FBCL website and on the “FBCL Virtual Programs & Educational Resources” Facebook group page. They can conveniently be viewed from home at any time.

The November schedule of online Family Story Time programs will be posted on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Family Story Time includes stories, songs, and action rhymes that children of all ages can enjoy.

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.

A special online School-Age Program — “Candy Science” — will take place on Saturday, November 13. In this pre-recorded video for students in grades K-5, youth librarians will demonstrate scientific concepts by conducting experiments using candy and other ingredients commonly found in the kitchen.

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.
