The Prince George Public Library (PGPL) is adding even more virtual programming in May.

Throughout the pandemic, the library is offering people a way to stay connected while in isolation by the COVID-19 pandemic.

There are new programs for adults (anyone over 18) including trivia nights and weekly gaming sessions, while new programs for children and teens will include a Resume Workshop for Teens, a trivia challenge for ages 10 to 18, and a kid’s cooking class later in the month.

In total, the PGPL is offering between 10 and 12 public programs every week in May.

Senior Reading, where library staff read to residents at seniors’ facilities, will continue via Skype calls with the residents at Laurier Manor.

Six library book clubs have also moved online.

Within a week of the library’s closure due to COVID-19, staff began offering regular virtual programs for children and teens. Those programs such as storytimes in French and English, and gaming programs for youth will also continue.

According to the PGPL, visitors have borrowed over 9,400 eBooks, audiobooks, movies and music from the library’s digital collections in April.

It adds there are currently 25,000 physical items on loan in the community and due dates have been extended to June 1.

The programs take place on a variety of platforms such as Facebook Live, Google Hangouts and Discord.

More information about upcoming PGPL programs is available on its website and Facebook page.
