Learning Resources During Closures

Amidst the situation with COVID-19, we want you to know that our patron’s health and safety is of the utmost importance to us.  While the library is closed, we want to provide our patrons, of all ages, with resources to continue learning, growing and accessing all we still have to offer.  We have compiled a list of links you can use to access FREE resources while your children are home from school, day care facilities and normal daily activities.  We will continue to update this document if needed. We have broken it down into sections for you and your children to make it easier to find what you are looking for.

As always, we are here to help.  If you have any questions about the PDF of resources or any of our other services that you still have full access to such as our downloadable audiobooks/ebooks/magazines/videos or language services, please contact us through phone or e-mail.

We wish you all health and safety during this time.
