Children’s & Teen Online Programming

Our “Online Programs” can be accessed from home! Some of the programs will be broadcast live, others (with permission of the presenters) will be recorded and made available to watch anytime. We’re using the popular Zoom platform. If you haven’t used Zoom on your computer or mobile device before, you’ll be prompted to download the free app the first time you try to connect to a Zoom presentation. If you need help, email us at jref@cplib.org.

(Please note: All live online programs are limited to Comsewogue Public Library patrons only–you’ll need your library barcode number to register).

Teen online Zoom programs are restricted to students entering grades 6–12 with a valid Comsewogue Public Library card. Scroll all the way down for fun digital escape rooms, teen quizzes and teen crafting videos that you can enjoy anytime. In addition to our online programs, check out our Remote Volunteer Opportunities.
