Program Updates: What Programs Would YOU Like To See?

Things feel a little like they’re getting back to normal… until you realize that it’s now “normal” to do everything on your screen! It’s been a big adjustment for everyone – including us at the library! 

We’re rolling out some fresh storytimes for the fall (have you seen S’more Stories yet? And keep an eye out in November – live Zoom storytimes are coming soon!), but we’d love to offer more! What do you miss about the children’s room? What do you wish you could do – with friends or solo? 

Would you join us online to talk about your favorite books, or do you want to hear more recommendations from your librarians? Do you miss Pokemon Club? How about playing a round in a virtual room with other Pokemon trainers? Interested in picking up a pre-packaged Movie Night to enjoy with your family?

Don’t worry – all these things are in the works! But we’d really like to hear your ideas – things you’d like to see, whether it’s an old favorite, a modification of something we’ve done before, or something brand new. If you have an idea but don’t know how to make it work, let us know anyway! Leave your comments below or email kids@amesfreelibrary.org.
