Virtual story times announced for all to enjoy

Joplin Public Library’s Children’s Department staff are excited to host our first virtual story time series! Your Children’s Department staff will present weekly story times, via YouTube, on some of our favorite story time themes, including libraries, animals, and nature. Each story time will include 2-3 books, songs, rhymes, and movement-based activities!

The story times will be released each Tuesday morning at 10 A.M. on JPL’s Facebook page and www.joplinpubliclibrary.org/kids/ and will be available through the following Monday. Our first story time video will be released Tuesday, June 2nd. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information!

By continuing to provide weekly story times, we hope to contribute to the positive development of early literacy skills and school readiness. Although these story times will look a bit different, we hope that we can contribute to family routines and provide a sense of normalcy for our story time families.

For more information on this and other events at the Rosemary Titus Reynolds Children’s Library at Joplin Public Library, please contact Christina Matekel-Gibson at 417-623-7953 or visit our website.
