Dayton Metro Library Will Offer Live, Online Storytimes

Dayton Metro Library continues to find new ways to reach out to children and families. Starting Tuesday, December 1, Children Services Librarians will host live, online storytimes via Webex. The free, 15-20 minute sessions feature stories, songs, rhymes and activities, along with participant interaction, Q & A, and more.
 
“We miss storytimes and the excitement of having groups of children together in the Library,” said Mandie Burns, DML Youth Services Director. “Our new online storytimes will let us connect and interact with kids and families again. We’ll have a great time sharing books and leading activities with our young participants.”
 
Advance registration is required by calling 937.463.2665 or registering on the events calendar at DaytonMetroLibrary.org. A stable internet connection, a webcam and microphone are recommended, though participants can join by phone. Registered participants will receive more details on how to join each session.

In addition to virtual storytimes, a wide variety of videos can be viewed anytime on Dayton Metro Library’s Facebook page. Videos include STEM activities, storytelling, creative arts, and career exploration. The new Dial-a-Story service lets children listen to recorded stories anytime by calling 937.250.7500. Quick Text Tips remind parents and caregivers of simple activities they can do to enhance their young child’s literacy and learning skills. (To sign up for Quick Text Tips, text DML-Tips to 38671.) A monthly FOCUS enewsletter gets the word out about Library services and resources especially for parents, families and educators.
 
Virtual storytimes will continue into 2021. No storytimes will take place the weeks of Dec 21 and Dec 28, due to the holidays. For more information on any of these programs or services, call the Library’s Ask Me Line at 937-463-2665 or visit DaytonMetroLibrary.org.
