CANTON — As of last week, local libraries were allowed to reopen, but still follow CDC guidelines with social distancing.
Because of this, The Green Free Library in Canton decided to continue its traditional “Preschool Learning Time,” but instead, with a Facebook Live online called “Virtual Preschool Learning Time.”
“Our whole summer learning for preschoolers and school age up to grade 5/6 will be online. We won’t have any children’s programming in the Library until school returns,” said the library’s director, Cathy Golder, who is also hosting the free program every Thursday.
Preschool Learning Time lasts about 10-15 minutes every Thursday at 10 a.m. Golder says she usually does it on Facebook Live, but is working on getting a YouTube channel account going so those who do not have Facebook can still enjoy the program as well.
“Last week we celebrated mommies and grammies by reading three books about Moms. I also sang two songs they know, called Five Little Ducks and Skinamarink,” said Golder. “I then asked them to draw a picture of their mom, grandmom, etc.”
