IRON MOUNTAIN — The Dickinson County Library has begun hosting live storytimes via Zoom at 10:30 a.m. on the first and third Tuesday of each month.

The first session Tuesday featured early literacy specialist Crystal Jacklovitz reading “Give It,” by Cinders McLeod. The book centers on an enthusiastic young bunny that discovers how good it feels to use his allowance to help others.

Each storytime will have a different theme, with take-n-make craft kits available for curbside pickup.

Tuesday’s theme was about being smart with money and offered kits that included two free books, a bank to decorate, and coloring sheets. The Iron Mountain Kingsford Community Federal Credit Union and the Michigan Financial Wellness Initiative sponsored this program.

Registration soon will be open for the next session, “Star Wars Stories,” on May 4, with books, activities and songs all about a galaxy far, far away.

Links to the registration form will be posted on the library’s Facebook page and website at www.dcl-lib.org when available.

A link to join the Zoom event will be emailed to all who register. The craft kits are available while supplies last and are not necessary to enjoy the storytime, library staff stated.

Anyone with questions about the program can e-mail dcl.childrenservices@gmail.com.
