We will have another Children’s Story Time by Zoom, this Sunday May 31st at 10:00 AM— I took part in it last week and it was fabulous—it worked really well. The only thing missing was more children, so please spread the word and invite children far and near! Here is the announcement from Danette Harris and Joey Hawkins for May 31st:
Story Time with Joey and Danette: Boxes for Katje
At 10:00am this Sunday morning, please join Joey and Danette on Zoom as we read aloud the book Boxes for Katje. We will start out with joys and concerns. Then, we will read the story aloud, discuss the story and its big idea. All children in grades 4 and under are welcome to join us! Hope to see you there!
I imagine you know this by now, but Zoom accounts are free and allow you to test out the system in advance so you can be ready to sign on when the time comes.

Directions On How To Use Zoom
Download the Application to Your Computer First (if you will be using the computer)
Open your internet browser and go to zoom.us
On the top, charcoal colored bar, click
‘Resources=>Download Zoom client’
On the Download Center page that opens, choose the top option ‘Zoom Client for Meetings’
You will get a Zoom installer file appropriate for your computer.
Run that file and it will install a small, client application that all the Zoom Meeting links will use.
Once you successfully install this, you should be ready to join any Zoom meeting, using the meeting links that you receive.
