Fort Scott Public Library Story Time May 12

Storytime at Fort Scott Public Library is Tuesday,
May 12 at 10 am: Kites Storytime on Zoom
               11 am: Kites Storytime on Facebook Live
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, unless you have attended in the past. You may receive the link by one of two methods:

Message Fort Scott Public Library through Facebook or email Miss Val at [email protected] 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.

The same Zoom link will be used for each meeting. If you did not attend, to receive the link, message the library or Miss Valetta on Facebook, or send an email to [email protected] Zoom meetings require a device that has a camera and microphone, such as a smart phone, tablet, or laptop. You may choose to disable your video or audio at any time, and feel free to use a free Zoom background (just do a search and lots of them will pop up, along with instructions) if you don’t want everyone seeing your real life background. You may want to install the Zoom app before the meeting starts to make things easier. It is available on Google Play, Apple, and on their website. This event is for middle and high school students only. #FSPLFighters
