From obstacle courses to audiobooks, two Dallas libraries are adapting splendidly in the time of Covid. According to an article The Dallas Morning News published on November 23rd, the Garland Public Library has thrown together just the game for you. In it they say:
“Located at 4845 Broadway Blvd, the Nicholson Memorial Library System’s South Garland branch has an obstacle course whose activities are written on the pavement in chalk. ‘Our sidewalk chalk obstacle course is a perfect social distancing activity,’ the Garland library system said on Twitter.”
If you’re looking for a slightly more traditional library experience, then the Grapevine Public Library’s “Dial-A-Story” project is just for you. You can dial up the library and request all sorts of different audio according to the Dallas Morning News in an article published on November 23. In it they say:
“The Grapevine Public Library has a new free program allowing anyone to call a “Dial-A-Story” phone line to listen to audiobooks, jokes, fun facts and more. When you dial the number (817-442-2100), you can select chapters in the featured book by dialing the specific chapter numbers. This month, for example, “Dial-A-Story” is featuring every chapter of Anne of Green Gables.”
If you’ve missed going to the public library during the pandemic, these activities are for you.
