CLEVELAND — The coronavirus pandemic has closed schools, restaurants and businesses in Ohio. 

With children out of school and parents either out of work or working from, parents and guarding are looking for way to keep both themselves and their children occupied. 

Reading is an activity that can help keep you and your kids' minds stimulated.

But, many families rely on story time sessions at their local libraries, but those too are on hold in an effort to try and stop the spread of coronavirus. 

At WKYC Studios we are doing what can to help your children broaden their book horizons and stay interested in reading.

Beginning March 19, we're hosting virtual storytelling via Facebook Live. Join 3News' Maureen Kyle every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 9:30 a.m. as she reads some of her family's favorite stories.
