Carson City children can’t visit the library so librarians are bringing the library to them. Carson City Library staff is now hosting virtual story time for pre-kindergarten kids on Thursdays from 11:30-11:50 a.m. via Facebook Live.
The first one on April 2 will feature readings about bugs and bug displays, courtesy of University of Nevada, Reno’s Learning Resource Center; a dragonfly craft to make; and looking at NASA’s GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Tracker citizen science project at https://observer.globe.gov/do-globe-observer/mosquitoes. April is Citizen Science Month, according to J Hodnett, senior library assistant/Digitorium facilitator. “This is a perfect time for kids to get involved with citizen science because they can do it from home and know they are really contributing to a worldwide effort,” said Hodnett.
