Stuck at Home? Your Library is Here to Help.

Stuck at Home? Your Library is Here to Help.

For families of all ages, a global pandemic can be alarming and confusing. The Coronavirus (COVID-19) has been spreading throughout the United States now, specifically, and has led to school and public closures. The uncertainty of this national and global situation can induce more anxiety in our kids. However, learning how to talk about what is going on and what to do next can be the first step that grown-ups can take to lead to better understanding for families with kids.

Your public library can be a source of trustworthy information and educational resources if you and your family are, in fact, stuck at home. We've compiled all ages materials that are FREE to access from live videos of authors/illustrators sharing their work, homework practice, language learning apps, family yoga videos, streaming platforms, and more. Education companies like these are also offering FREE subscriptions and services.
