At Clayton County Library System, a number of virtual programs have been implemented in response to the Library’s closure and the COVID-19 pandemic. One program that we have done virtually is a meeting of our Graphic Novel Club. The first meeting, which was centered around the X-Men Universe, took place on April 7th via Google Meet. We saw this as a great opportunity to engage and stay connected to our patrons while still operating remotely from home. The next meeting scheduled for April 21st covered the villain/anti-heroine known as Catwoman.
Something fun and entertaining that we are doing is a program known as Friday Fun-Day Trivia. On April 10th, participants were able to view the stream on Google Meet from one device. They logged in to the Kahoot website (kahoot.it) on a separate device in order to answer the trivia questions. This is a great opportunity to get everyone in the family involved and is a good way to relieve some stress during these unprecedented times.
All of our virtual events are advertised on our social media as well as in our e-newsletter that is sent out weekly. Check out our Instagram page at https://www.instagram.com/claytongalib/ to see all the other virtual programs we have coming up.
