J. Joel Edwards Public Library Continues to Provide Virtual Programs

ZEBULON - Although current conditions have prevented in-house group gatherings, the library continues to provide regular programs for its patrons. All story programs are virtual and can be viewed on the library’s Facebook page.

Beginning Oct. 5, the Rockin’ Readers story program gears back up every Monday at 4:00. Kids in kindergarten through 4th grade will enjoy stories, songs, activities, and even a few science experiments.

Preschool Story Time, geared for ages 3-5, airs on Facebook Live every Tuesday at 11:00, and Toddler Time, for ages 12-36 months, airs Live on Thursdays at 11:00. Cooking for Kids airs on Facebook the third Saturday of the month. Kids ages 5-12 can join Ms. Helen in the kitchen as she demonstrates easy and scrumptious dishes. “Be sure to watch upcoming episodes,” says Helen, “to see how you can win prizes by testing these recipes.”

Finally, the Make-and-Take craft program returns in October. Children through age 12 may stop by the library on Wednesdays between 11 and 5 to pick up a craft kit to take home and assemble. All materials and instructions are included in each kit, and online instructions will also be provided.

“Be sure to follow the J. Joel Edwards Public Library on Facebook,” reminds Helen, “to keep up to date on all our programs.”
