When the 10 a.m. Bitterroot Public Library kids story time stopped due to the COVID-19 Montana restrictions, Wendy Campbell of the library staff teamed up with Hamilton Mayor Dominic Farrenkopf to record "virtual" Story Time. And, as an added feature, they would visit city parks as the recording locations. The shows have been appearing on Fridays at the Bitterroot Public Library's Facebook website, and will continue as long as the crowd restrictions last.

This past week, Wendy and Dominic recorded along one of the paths at Hieronimus Park, with the theme of "ducks." And they were visited by a couple of mallards during the session.
