Lauren Burm's children have missed going to the Hingham Public Library in person, so she registered them for one of the library's virtual activities. “We are so lucky to have such a fantastic local resource like the Hingham Library," said Burm, a Hingham mom-of-two. "They have come up with some really fun and creative activities, like the scavenger hunt held this week. This is a great example of how you can still have fun and be connected to a local resource remotely.”
From scavenger hunts to story time, baking to family Bingo, the Hingham Public Library is offering a wide variety of virtual programming. Take a coffee break online with library staff. Learn how to use Zoom through Zoom. Participate in a STEAM playgroup for toddlers or a STEM workshop series for older kids. The list of options is as wide as the imagination.
All virtual programs require registering in advance online. A Zoom meeting link is then emailed to participants shortly before the meeting begins. To learn more, please visit the library's calendar by clicking here.
