Libraries’ Children’s Programs Return To Virtual Format In September
Sep 28, 2021 –
Because the county risk level was raised to the Orange or “Moderate/Significant risk” category on August 3, Fort Bend County Libraries’ (FBCL) youth-services programming – Family Story Time – will remain in virtual format rather than in-person as previously planned.
The fall schedule of online Family Story Time programs will begin during the week of August 17 and continue online through September 30. These virtual programs will be live-streamed twice a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10:15 am, 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.
Starting in September, families with infants 1-12 months of age can practice their early-literacy skills by watching the Little Bits 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.
Bilingual Story Time (English/Spanish) will be pre-recorded and available for viewing on Saturdays, September 18 and 25. 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.
Families are reminded to pick up their Summer Reading Challenge prizes by August 31.
