We have done virtual sessions with our resource professionals where they presented child development information and then answered questions from participants. We've also presented a virtual FPL series that focused on the developmental benefits of various toys. The virtual programming wasn't impactful as to our community as live in-person programming. In September, we were pleased to re-start in-person programs, with family storytime. This eased families back into making library time part of their routine again. We had one father who came with his daughter (about 2 1/2 yrs) to family storytime. At first she would only sit by the stage and wouldn't engage at all. She slowly made progress each week and by December was staying for the entire storytime and singing some songs. Now that in-person programs have paused, dad still brings her and they do the passive programs. Dad let us know that she asks to come and never wants to leave. We've added Make and Take Mondays to our regular schedule. There are a handful of parents that come first thing every Monday to pick up the activity bags for their children. Over the summer, Early Lit bags were popular. They contained a book and several extension activities based on the book with activities and crafts parents would do with their children ages 0-3. These were very well received by caregivers. One caregiver commented that his daughter isn't in school yet and do everything at home. The library makes things easy to do learning activities at home and see how she is growing. Another caregiver commented that she really enjoyed the kits and shared that her child loved the frog activity so much and was doing the activities every day.
