FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — The Allen County Public Library may be closed because of COVID-19 concerns, but that does not mean you can not take advantage of all its online resources.

ACPL will not resume normal events and programs until May 18. Below is an initial list of available virtual programs and resources. 

Virtual Storytimes

Children’s librarians will read to children during virtual storytimes created by ACPL. The first storytime will be posted on Friday, March 27 at 10 a.m. It will be available on the Library’s Facebook page, Instagram and YouTube page.

Children and their caregivers can enjoy a story, and take advantage of accompanying resources developed by the librarians for children and families. 

Because ACPL will not resume normal events and programs until May 18, the list of offerings will continue to expand.

ACPL Genealogy Center Virtual Workshops

The ACPL Genealogy Center will also provide virtual programs and workshops.  The next will be available on all three ACPL platforms on Monday, March 30 at 10 a.m.  It will focus on using the Genealogy Center’s website for research.
