With local libraries closed and more parents home with their children as the coronavirus pandemic continues to grip the country, Maryborough Regional Library is bringing a little light to the community.
The library closed its doors last Wednesday to help minimise the risk of transmitting the virus but staff were quick to find a new way to connect with locals.
Library employees have been recording and publishing videos of themselves singing and reading stories on Facebook to engage the region’s young residents and library services manager Maree Stephenson said they’ve been sticking to their usual program.
“We’re keeping to our schedule that we generally have for children’s programming,” she said.
“Tuesdays it’s Toddler Time, Wednesdays and Fridays is Story Time and we’re alternating those with a craft activity, and Thursday is Baby Rhyme Time.
“Those videos will be posted at 11 am on those days.”
