Does your business employ community helpers, or do you know any local helpers? Lexy Twidell, the Early Literacy Librarian at Indian Prairie Public Library, hopes that you might partner with her as she creates a story time series for families in our community so that they get to better know the faces of those who serve us every day. This includes construction workers, grocery workers, sanitation workers, doctors and nurses, veterinarians, police officers...you get the idea.
She will collect brief introductory videos from these community helpers, introducing them to the library's littlest patrons and their families, and telling a bit about your job and how you serve the community. She hopes this will help create a sense of unity in our neighborhood at a time when people feel very divided and isolated.
The videos can be as short as you like. Lexy would even appreciate if you simply sent a picture of yourself in uniform or at your place of work with a brief message that she can read to the kids on your behalf.
