The York County Public Library started an outdoor mini-story times for toddlers and preschoolers as a way to connect with the community during the pandemic.

The story times take place every Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 a.m. — 11:15 a.m. and again from 11:30-11:45 a.m.

The areas are sanitized during breaks between story times, organizers said.

So, here’s the gist:

  • Preschool Story Time (ages 2½-5)
    Tuesday October 6, 13, 20, 27
    11– 11:15 am OR 11:30-11:45 am
  • Toddler Tales (ages 17-30 months)
    Wednesday October 7, 14, 21, 28
    11 — 11:15 a.m. or 11:30-11:45 a.m.

Michelle Paxton, the youth services coordinator, said the library was trying to figure out how to start giving the public what they wanted or needed as pandemic restrictions begin to ease up.

Mini outdoors story times is what the library decided on — so there would be fresh air and they could divide each area for social distancing. Adults and staff are required to wear masks; hand sanitizer stations are set-up around the area, according to the library.

Each program will be limited to nine children and a parent/caregiver.

Registration for the following week will open the day after the most recent story time session. For details and to register, click here.
