OCPL's Children's Department:
The Children's Department "Story Time" series offers high-quality, free programs almost every Tuesday and Wednesday at 10:00 AM. Though the Library is now reopened for visits by appointment, our in-person programming is still unavailable for social distancing purposes. But, don't worry. Miss Lee Ann is still reading Story Time and Toddler Time stories and posting the videos online for you to watch from your own home. Story Times are offered online through the OCPL Facebook page and the OCPL Kids! YouTube channel on Tuesdays at 10 am.
Story Time programs introduce young children to books, rhymes, songs, crafts, and other fun activities. Library Story Time incorporates the early literacy skills that children must master before they can learn to read. Story Times are designed for children 3-5 years old, though all ages are welcome. The program lasts approximately 45 minutes and caregivers are asked to participate with their children. Story Time is held in the Children's Department.
To maintain social distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering our children's programs online only.
Live broadcasts can be viewed either on the OCPL Kids! Youtube channel or the Ohio County Public Library Facebook page. Subscribe to our YouTube channel or like us on Facebook to received notifications of our upcoming live broadcasts or download our free OCPL Connect app from your smartphone's app store (available for both iPhones and Android devices).
All videos will be available for playback following our broadcasts and viewable on the Story Time Online Page.
