Because of the COVID-19 social-distancing recommendations, Fort Bend County Libraries’ Cinco Ranch Branch Library is continuing to offer children’s programming virtually this spring, so that families can participate from the comfort and safety of home!
Videos of Mother Goose Time, Toddler Time, Preschool Story Time, After-School Breaks, and Middle School Programs will be posted on the online Virtual calendar on FBCL’s website each week.
Several special online Family Programs, for children of all ages, will also be featured in February.
SPECIAL FAMILY VIRTUAL EVENTS
March 6 – “Wooden O” (pre-recorded video)
William Shakespeare called his stage a “Wooden O” – an empty space where the audience’s imagination helps the actors tell the story. In this theater performance, children will engage their senses to help Robin Goodfellow -- a prankster with a little magic up his sleeve – on an imaginative quest to find a mysterious flower. Recommended for families with children aged 3 to 5, this performance is presented by Brave Little Company, in conjunction with Young Audiences of Houston.
March 13 – “Preschool Story Lab: Just Build It!” (pre-recorded video)
The Preschool Story Lab is a creative story time event that encourages children to discover and explore concepts in science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM). FBCL’s children’s librarians will read books, sing songs, and demonstrate a variety of STEAM activities that can be done with simple supplies found around the home.
March 20 – “Creating Easy Ribbon Art with Danny Russo” (pre-recorded video)
Teaching artist Danny Russo will demonstrate how to create a ribbon-art masterpiece. Materials used for this project include: ribbon, scissors, markers, craft paint, glue pencil, paint brush, and construction paper.
