Libraries are offering more online programs.
Prince William Public Libraries have been working on providing digital content that ranges from science experiments to music and motion videos, according to a release from Prince William County.
According to Rachel Johnson, the library system’s communication services division chief, the library system is trying to share at least one video each day. The goal to have one video a day for children, teens, and adults.
Staff are also working on additional online programs. Johnson mentions how they are currently working hard on starting virtual book clubs.
“Right now, we need to stay connected to our community, and it’s important that our community knows that we’re still there for them,” Johnson said in a release. “If we can continue to provide service – not only just programs, but things like our Digital Library so they still have access to eBooks, audio books and other resources through our Digital Library – that’s what we do. Our mission is to serve the community.”
The digital library requires a library card for access, and digital cards are available on the library’s website. In addition to the digital library, the card gives access to other programs such as Libby, OverDrive, hoopla Digital, eBooks, and audio books.
More information can be found on the library system’s website or its Facebook page.
