ACTIVITIES TO DO AT HOME
While snow days can bring a time of jubilation to some, this state mandated school closure can be a time of great apprehension and uncertainty. Several educational companies and locations are trying to ease the community with making their resources available for free.
Please feel free to use these resources while you are practicing social distancing. If you run into any technical issues, please email the library (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will be monitoring our email and will try to offer support in a timely manner.
