COVID-19 ONLINE STORY RESOURCES
Many authors are using this time to record themselves reading their books and posting the videos online. Below are links to these videos or links to sites with collections of these videos. More are being added as we find them so check back often.
We are currently looking into offering our own story times in an online format, via either livestreaming or recordings. Please give us your patience as we navigate these new waters; we hope to have something up by Wednesday at the latest.
