Rock County’s public libraries are collaborating on a unique program series that will benefit parents, teachers, and young students this fall. These programs will provide additional educational opportunities for families as they navigate this new learning environment.

Known as Library Shorts, this series will feature one 5-10 minute video lesson a day, for one week each month this autumn. Each video will tackle a different school subject with the week’s overarching theme in mind. This October, Library Shorts will be helping 4- to 10-year-olds learn about fall with mini-lessons in Math, Music, Science, Wellness/Mindfulness, Writing, and Art. In November and December, Library Shorts will explore “Community” and “Celebration.”

Videos will be posted on the Library Shorts blog at 8:00 am Monday through Saturday, October 12-17 and can be completed at one’s leisure. Look for the link on our website and Facebook page, or visit the blog directly at

Some lessons may require supplies–many can be found around the home. The week’s supply list will be available on the Library Shorts blog and library Facebook pages beginning Thursday, October 8.
