Live Storytime for Children – Square Books Jr.
Square Books Jr.’s live storytime is a beloved community activity for young pre-school aged kids/ families on Wednesdays and both school-age and pre-school families on Saturdays. While the stories are great, Ms. Jill’s music makes the experience truly magical. Not only can you join the live storytime on their Facebook page, but you can watch past ones that you may have missed. Ms. Jill will post upcoming books she will read. Be sure to engage with Ms.Jill and share with her your recommendations as well.

Thacker Mountain Radio Hour
While you can’t be part of the audience, you can still jam out and relax in your living room during Thacker Mountain Radio Hour. This loved Oxford gem is currently working with the scheduled authors and bands for March and April to digitally or remotely broadcast the show. Kick-off your shoes and dance around the living room during their broadcast. As always you can listen in every Saturday at 7 p.m. on Mississippi Public Broadcasting and 9 p.m. on Alabama Public Radio.
We know you and your coworkers are tired of seeing the same living room & bedroom walls on the Zoom so why don’t we change it up?! You can find all your zoom background options below.
