We’re in the middle of the fourth week of social distancing and Grand County Library District branches being closed and programs canceled. We know how challenging of a time it has been for all of us, but GCLD is still here to support you!

Even though we can’t get together in person, we are still offering lots of programs and activities online for all ages. Here’s a rundown of what we have going on:

Digital Storytime

Even though the libraries are closed, you can still join us for Storytime. All your favorite librarians are reading books and singing songs for little ones from their homes.

• 10 a.m. Wednesdays — Ms. Heidi from the Granby Library

We continue to add new digital programming opportunities as we can, so check our website often for updates. While we miss seeing our patrons’ smiling faces in person, we hope to connect with you soon online.
