The JKPL is pleased to offer an on-demand children’s program series from Checkers Library TV called The Reading Road Trip: Full STEAM Ahead.  The weekly themes are:  Disabilities (11/2); Superheroes (11/9); Going to the Doctor (11/16); Thanksgiving (11/23) and Exercise (11/30).

The Reading Road Trip is a weekly educational entertainment program starring Checkers the Inventor, his robot sidekick and a variety of visitors. With a mix of book recommendations, arts and crafts, health and wellness tips, short films, and more, there is something for everyone in each episode. A new video will be released weekly and kids can come to the library to watch the program and then complete some fun related activities.

These programs are for kids in kindergarten thru fourth grade. Registration is encouraged as space is limited, but walk-ins are welcome if space allows. A related activity kit can be picked up in the Creation Station at the library.  The videos can also be watched on demand on the JKPL Facebook page and YouTube Channel. However, the videos on YouTube are unlisted so contact the library to get the URL link.  This program is supported by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the American Rescue Plan Act as administered by the State Library of Iowa.
