A quick note.

Please be sure to register for these programs by signing up on event keeper at tinyurl.com/OxfordCTLibrary or by emailing us to let us know you’re participating. This is to help us demonstrate our community engagement statistics for our annual report. Though many of our remote-access programs do not require you to be present at a specific day or time, registering or emailing about programs you participate in would be greatly appreciated. 

Also 

You may notice that we utilize YouTube rather than live video-chat for our story time programs. Among other considerations, the two main reasons we choose to do this are…

  1. Many families share a home computer, by posting our story time programs on YouTube, families are not required to be present at a certain time/date.
  2. We want to be mindful of your right to decide your level of interaction. Many wonderful programs are hosted via live video-chat, however, almost all web-based services have some security concerns to take into consideration. We want to make sure that you are in charge of deciding if you would like to use those platforms or not.  Several of the virtual programs in May and June are hosted by third parties who utilize these platforms to best present their programs, but we want to make sure there are other programs that offer options for those who choose to not participate in live virtual-interaction.
