Fall 2020 Programs & Events — Birth–PreK

September Storytimes & Family Fun

We will be using the Zoom meeting platform for all of our weekly storytimes. Storytimes can be viewed on a PC, Mac, Smartphone or Tablet (using the Zoom Cloud Meeting App).

  • Registration is required so we can send you the Zoom link.
  • New to Zoom? Allow a few minutes for set up before joining a storytime for the first time.
  • To help stay secure with Zoom we ask that you do not share login information with others. Please direct them to our Event Calendar for registration.
  • The Zoom login information will be emailed to you before the class begins.

Families are encouraged to check in to storytime early, in order to allow time for check in. Your storytime host will let you in from the “waiting room.”
