County library system providing virtual programs
The Lee County Library System, which includes the Captiva Memorial Library, is offering the following free virtual programming for all ages:
– May 6: Healthy Living for Your Brain and Body at 1 p.m.
Join the Alzheimer’s Association for a virtual seminar to learn about research in the areas of diet and nutrition, exercise, cognitive activity and social engagement, and use hands-on tools to help incorporate these recommendations into a plan for healthy aging. Advance registration required.
– May 7: Tracing Female Ancestors at 10 a.m.
Prior to the 20th century, identities of women were, both by law and custom, often interwoven with that of their husbands. Hence, many genealogists refer to their female lines of research as their “invisible ancestors.” Seminar will cover the best record types and research strategies available to overcome these challenges. Advance registration required.
– Today, May 5: Storytime Anytime!
Enjoy storytime at home or on the go with Storytime Anytime! This is a condensed version of the in-person storytimes and includes a variety of songs, stories, rhymes and caregiver tips designed to promote and reinforce early literacy and language development.
