Douglas Storytime is on cable access

Staff reports

Douglas County Public Library’s Storytime is on television. The show airs on channel 26.

“The library was looking for an outreach for the youth of the community,” said Linda Deacy, an employee at the library.

“Suzy Stockdale, of Stockdale and Crum, contacted a customer who donated $1,000 for video equipment. His only request was that he wanted the money to go toward the children of the community,” Deacy said.

When the library realized that cable access had no children’s shows, they decided to start airing Storytime.

“It works well for children who have to miss a Storytime because they are sick or on vacation or something like that,” Deacy said.

The library plans on developing a series, with a new Storytime aired every two weeks.

“It was a chance for the library to contribute to cable access and to make the library more visual,” Deacy explained.

The tapes will be available for check out at the library.

The regular Storytime will still be every Wednesday at 9:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m., at the library. The 10:30 a.m. Storytime will be taped. Storytime can be seen on channel 26, Fridays at 10 p.m., Saturdays at 4 and 10 a.m., and 4 and 10 p.m. and Sundays at 4 and 10 a.m., and 4 p.m.

The Aug. 7 show will be turtles, Aug. 14 will be Laura Ingalls Wilder, Aug. 21 will be crocodiles and Aug. 28 will be origami. The public is encouraged to call 782-9841 for information
