Virtual Baby Storytime: Week 3

Week 3 of virtual baby storytime! I think I am finally getting the hang of my timing. I’m closer to 30 minutes anyway.

Lyrics or links for any activities are in the YouTube video descriptions AND due to a wonderful tip from Ontarian Librarian, now in the background of my videos!

Generally, our view numbers are lower than where we started, but they are still fairly solid, with a solid 40-50 live views the entire time for most storytimes. We have been receiving less patron comments, but the ones we do get are from regulars, which makes me happy to know that there are some WPL patrons that are watching and enjoying what we do.

Background: While my library is closed during the COVID pandemic, we are hosting five virtual storytimes a week, livestreamed through our Facebook page. While those livestreams are deleted soon after they are complete, we are also making YouTube clips of select elements of our storytimes that our patrons can view anytime they would like–and that I can share with all of you!
