Fort Scott Public Library Activities May 5, 6

Fort Scott Public Library Storytime
May 5: 10 am Choices Storytime on Zoom (the meeting will be recorded and may be made available after it ends).
               11 am  Choices Storytime on Facebook Live (we may post the video on the library’s YouTube channel as well).
Join Miss Val online for virtual storytime! The library will use the Zoom platform for the 10 am storytime and Facebook Live for the 11 am event. This should remain the schedule until the library reopens, but stay tuned to Fort Scott Public Library’s Facebook page for all event updates. To attend the Zoom meeting, you will need to message the library for the meeting link. You may receive the link by one of two methods:

Message Fort Scott Public Library through Facebook or email Miss Val at before the start (10 am Tuesday) of storytime, and they will send you the link. The same link will be used for all future Zoom storytimes.

Zoom can be accessed on any pc with a camera and headset, smartphone, or tablet with online access. The application will allow families to see and interact with one another, in addition to being a part of storytime. Storytimes will be recorded and posted afterwards, when possible, for anyone who misses part or all of the meetings to view later. You will have the option of turning your video and audio on and off anytime during the meeting.
