Round Rock Library

Online Storytimes at your just-right time

Round Rock Public Library‘s Youth Services Staff have been creating short online storytimes every week during the pandemic.

The video series is called Pause & Play. Most episodes have featured a single book or song, and the content was selected with an emphasis on providing a short, rich experience that families could view on their own schedule.

Now that we are offering an outdoor storytime for toddlers and preschoolers, we will produce fewer new Pause & Play episodes. However, thanks to generous pandemic copyright permissions from several publishers, we are able to keep past issues available to Round Rock families for a few more months.

So, pause for just a few minutes, and engage in a playful book activity with your favorite kids. The easiest way to choose an episode is to look at one of three playlists on the official City of Round Rock, Texas YouTube channel:

Pause & Play main playlist

Pause & Play private access playlist (public rights have expired, but access through a private link is allowed)

Playlist of videos to celebrate special days or months

Babies, sorry, we don’t have an outdoor storytime for you, yet. But don’t worry! We’ll continue publishing new videos each week for babies in the Babytime Buzz playlists on Facebook, Instagram IGTV, and YouTube. Watch for new episodes every Thursday morning.
