Online Programs

Unfortunately, we will not be able to have our Summer Reading Kickoff, Jolly Thursdays, Tower Tuesdays or other programs at our branches this summer. Don’t worry though! We have lots of online programs planned that you can enjoy from home.

Our online programs are primarily divided into three different types: Take & Make programs, Zoom programs and YouTube programs.


Take & Make Programs

Registration is required for these virtual programs. The programs include Take & Make bags that will provide everything you need to participate. Take & Make bags must be picked up three days prior to the program for those who have registered unless arrangements have been made.

The tutorial for each program will be available on the designated program date and time by visiting https://www.cc-pl.org/articles.


Zoom Programs

These are live programs that will be conducted via Zoom, a free online video conferencing platform. Registration is required. On the day of the program, we will email you with the link to join the live program. You are not required to have a Zoom account.


YouTube Programs

These programs will be released on our YouTube channel on the program date and time listed. Story times, yoga and a tour of the animals at Good Green Earth Farm are just a few of the ones we have planned. There is no need to register for these programs. However, you can sign up to receive an email reminder for the program so you can make sure you don’t miss it!
