Program Description

Event Details

Would you like to make a lasting memory and connect with a child in your life? You can, with Storybook Legacies - now held the first and third Saturdays of every month, in addition to the third Wednesday of every month!

Trained volunteers will record you reading a children's book aloud on video for a child who is special to you. The volunteers will help prepare you for your video, ensuring you feel comfortable and confident. Once your video footage is finalized, you will be sent a secure YouTube link that you can share with your children, grandchildren, or any special young person. This is a unique opportunity for you to create intergenerational connections through the magic of reading. 

Storybook Legacies will be at the Library the third Wednesday of each month from noon-2 p.m. in the Digital Media Lab, and the first and third Saturdays of every month from 10:30-12:30 in the Ruby Room. To register, please visit https://calendly.com/readinglegacies-storycorner/storybook-legacies-program-at-the-coronado-pubic-library?month=2022-07, choose your date and pick a timeslot. If a particular day's slots are full, you will need to register for a spot in a future month. 

About a week before each Storybook Legacies date, someone will reach out to you with a how-to flyer, a link to an informational video, and a list of recommended books (although any book is fine) and other information. 

Storybook Legacies is a program of Reading Legacies, founded by Betty J. Mohlenbrock, Founder and CEO (retired) of United Through Reading, a similar program for military families. Storybook Legacies has a Story Corner in Liberty Station and the Coronado Public Library is excited to be its second location.
