Heading to the Victoria Public Library for the beloved Story Time Live! program has been a staple in Haidyn Tomas and Kalissa Gonzalez’s routine for years.
Since the coronavirus pandemic hit, Victoria resident Gonzalez and 2-and-a-half-year-old Haidyn, who she nannies, have kept busy taking walks, playing outside and doing crafts. Still, Gonzalez was afraid it would be a challenging transition for Haidyn when the library closed.
“We’ve been going to Story Time Live! at the library since she was 6 months old,” Gonzalez said. “Once this all hit, I thought, ‘How do I break it to her that we don’t have this event to go to?’”
