Family Storytime Online

Miss Jess is hosting a variation of our weekly storytimes! These sessions will look a little different than our library storytimes, but we want to help you keep up your regular routines.

Each day will feature your familiar songs and rhymes, along with a few ideas to keep you reading at home. You can now find us on ECAT at our regularly scheduled times (Comcast 9, Verizon 22), or click here to go straight to the video.

For your own storytimes at home, here are some links to free online storybooks that your little ones will enjoy!

Abdo Digital Bookshelf: eBooks, audiobooks, databases, and interactive books, available for free through June 2020. Check out Grades Pre-K-6.
