Children's Book

If you and your children miss attending storytime as much as we miss presenting it, then this blog is for you.

We are extremely excited to announce that starting Monday, you'll have 5 opportunities to attend a live performance of storytime with your local librarian.

There are two ways to join in the fun. You can watch via Facebook Live or you can join our interactive portion held through Zoom.

  • To watch online, visit www.facebook.com/sjplearlyed. You do not need a Facebook account to watch the program.
  • To participate in the interactive portion, register through our events listing to receive an invitation to join us on Zoom.

How do I access Zoom?

You do not need a Zoom account in order to register and participate.

You can access Zoom on your desktop computer, or you can download the app to your mobile device and tablet.
