While many kids and families are practicing self-isolation and social distancing at home, and as schools remain closed, many are looking for fun activities during the upcoming months ahead. San Bernardino Public Library has just the answer with the addition of their new virtual weekly program Checker’s Library TV, available at https://vimeo.com/showcase/7164350.
Checkers Library TV is a weekly virtual online educational entertainment program starring Checkers the Inventor, his robot sidekick, Snoozer, and a variety of special guest visitors including medical professionals, community leaders, police officers, and firefighters, and other special guests. Each weekly episode also includes a variety of segments featuring storytelling, health tips and news, art projects, science experiments, book recommendations, games, contests, trivia, interviews, and more. It promises fun for the entire family.
Checkers The Inventor has specialized in producing multi-media educational entertainment for libraries, schools, online platforms, and live events for a decade. He is known for his creative, high-energy live library programs, as the author of a kids book series, a presenter hosting educational programs for elementary, middle and high schools, and an innovator in multimedia educational entertainment content, producing online video content targeted to kids ages 3-12 with over 6 million views worldwide on YouTube. Checkers & Snoozer were selected to perform at The White House three times for over 150,000 guests!
Checker’s Library T.V. is an exciting addition to the library’s digital library, online content and virtual programs. The series offers new episodes every Monday all summer long through Labor Day.
