The York County Public Library is starting a new program called “Baby Bookworms,” a six-week Zoom session for caregivers with literacy, parenting tips and other resources.

The event is geared for parents and caregivers of infants ––from birth to fifteen months. You can register here. 

“Parenting is tough and even more so for parents of little ones,” said Michelle Paxton, Youth Services Coordinator, in a prepared statement. “COVID-19 has added another layer of stress because parents and caregivers are unable to meet in person with other adults in similar situations to find support and advice.” 

“By conducting our program via Zoom, caregivers can join together regardless of COVID-19 restrictions,” she added.

Caregivers can also expect support and the opportunity to build relationships, according to the county’s news release.

“Baby Bookworms” meets every Thursday at 10:30 a.m. starting Jan. 21 to Feb. 25.

Registration starts Jan. 4 and attendees will receive an email with the Zoom login.

For more information, call the York County Youth Services department at 757-890-3236 or email them at youthservices@yorkcounty.gov. You can check out the Baby Bookworms YouTube video below, courtesy of the York County Public Library.
