We love storytime online! Libraries across the country are sharing so many exciting and diverse storytimes via social media. Whether you want to make art, listen to stories in Spanish, or learn how to structure your own library-style storytime at home, there are resources to watch, listen to, and learn from! We wanted to share some of some of our favorites with you…
