Virtual Programming Continues in the Fall!

Virtual Programming Continues in the Fall!

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we will be keeping all programming virtual for the fall. Beginning in September, there will be weekly programs for each age group with a mixture of Facebook live and recorded video programs, as well as private Zoom calls to allow children and their families to interact with our librarians.

Program times will vary to allow both homeschool and public school students to participate in the various programs ranging from homework help and art classes to gaming programs and theatre training.

Adults will also be able to enjoy both informational and entertaining programs. Along with the popular trivia nights and game shows, we have guest programmers who will be doing author visits and showing us how to repair household appliances. Local business professionals will be joining us for Table Talk to discuss changes that have had to take place as a result of COVID-19.

Some programs will require registration to get the Zoom link; participants can register on our calendar at www.SalineCounty.LibraryCalendar.com. Special fall programs will be added each month. The full schedule is as follows:
