FVRL to host distanced digital dance to fight COVID-19 blues

The party starts with DJ Jovie J at 2 p.m. on Friday

The quiet of libraries and loud dance parties don’t often mix.

To combat the COVID-19 isolation blues, the Fraser Valley Regional Library is hosting a Facebook Live digital dance party featuring DJ Jovie J on Friday, March 27 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

““Our physical locations are closed to support social distancing, but online the library is still very much open,” says Heather Scoular, Director of Customer Experience at FVRL. “The library is more than just an essential resource for reading and learning, we are also a place for social connection.”

“Beyond expanding our robust collection of digital content, we now plan to host live interactive library programs on our social channels,” Scoular continues. “We are kicking off this initiative with a fun Facebook Live digital dance party.”

In addition to the party, the FVRL is set to announce a new Playground experience and have some “SPECtacular giveaways.”

Connect with the FVRL via Facebook at Facebook.com/ReadLearnPlay. FRVL digital content is available 24/7 free with a FVRL card and available at www.fvrl.ca. On their website, library patrons can access eBooks, audio books, magazines and much more.

The FVRL is the largest public library system in the province with 25 libraries serving nearly 700,000 people. It has been a part of the Fraser Valley community nearly 100 years. Their Playground program offers free access to those engaged in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) related learning experiences. This often features in-library experiences and lending collections like bird-watching backpacks, telescopes and more.

DJ Jovie J is a 25-year veteran of the DJ business, performing for – among other venues – the Toronto Raptors and at the Las Vegas Hakkasan Nightclub.
