By Brenna Cooper, Meade County Public Library
The Meade County Public Library is reopening on July 9th at for the first time in months! While we are resuming many in person services, all programs will stay online only for the time being in keeping with social distancing. Our online programs are easy to find and use, with most programs taking place on Zoom. Zoom is free to use and only requires a meeting ID to get started (the meeting IDs for every program can be found in the descriptions on our Event Calendar). Any programs not utilizing Zoom are on our Facebook page.
Joy Trotter, Helen Fetters, and Julie Barksdale have created an ingenious new ways for continuing their regular programs. Summer Reading Story Times are held live on Zoom every Monday, and Summer Reading craft kits are available every Tuesday morning from 10-11:30am. They are hosting Family Nights remotely, offering teen craft projects, reading stories, creating instruction videos for projects, putting together craft kits for all ages, and more. They are regularly expanding the number of programs offered at the Library. You can see a full and up-to-date calendar on our website, www.meadereads.org.
Fitness is being offered live as well: Zumba every Monday, Chair Yoga every Monday and Wednesday, Cardio Fusion every Tuesday, Strength and Tone every Thursday, and Gentle Yoga every Friday. Our fitness instructors have been working hard to make it easy for you to be healthy at home. They love seeing their participants live, so if you can, consider coming to the live programs!
All of our classes are listed with their login information on our website, www.meadereads.org, in the Event Calendar. All our programs are free and open to all residents of Meade County, although for some programs you will need to register prior to participating.
Most programs are available as recordings for a limited time afterwards, also in the Event Calendar (if you are on a mobile device, you will need to view the desktop site to see past events). We keep everything up-to-date as new developments occur, and you can follow us on Facebook to see any Library news.
If you have any questions, please call us at 270-422-2094 and we will be happy to help. See you soon!
