About this Guide

During the COVID-19 school closings we want to offer resources that have been uncovered to assist parents, guardians, and others who want to help home-school their children while schools are closed.  There are a number of wonderful free resources out there and there is also access to a large number of databases available through the Library and accessible at home and work.

The tabs to the left will assist you in finding general and subject-specific resources.  In many of these you can find lesson plans, interactive activities, videos, e-books, and more.  The guide will not be fully completed for several days, so please bear with us knowing that this guide will continue to grow.  We will continue to add to these resources as they are discovered.

 

Have suggestions for sites you would like to see added?  Send me an email (click link to the right) with the name and link and why you are recommending its addition to the guide.
