Local indoor play facility Scramble may be closed, but the facility is offering story time every Tuesday and Thursday to help families quarantined as home get through the pandemic together.
The books are live-read at 11 a.m. and include small craft activities that participants can do at home.
Late last year, Laurence Smallman, owner of Scramble, told ALXnow his focus is not just to offer physical activity but providing them with access to educational resources and intellectual stimulation.
The storytime also helps out the business while its doors are closed. Each story time reading also includes a link to the book on the Scramble website, where they can purchase the book or others fitting various themes.
Scramble is also offering virtual bedtime stories every Friday at 7 p.m.
