RNR News and Notes

In an attempt to help "frazzled parents, bored kids and other stressed out customers", the Anne Arundel County Public Library plans to offer a series of special virtual programs and additional resources over the next two weeks.

 

 

These include special events on their Facebook Page (www.facebook.com/aacpl) -

 

  • Daily live story times from trained staff at 10:30 am (except Sundays) 
  • 30-minute concerts from the band SQRRL! at noon  
  • Miss Johanna’s STEM activity of the day at 1:15 pm 
  • The Great Movies discussion club on Friday at 7 pm   
    (This week’s selection is Murder on the Orient Express)
  • Information on virtual author and celebrity guided storytelling, educational resources 

 

 

 

In addition - they added to their extensive digital collection of eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, streaming movies, music and databases available on the library’s website. They plan to add  $150,000 worth of new digital content over the next two weeks.

 

Parents can check out new TumbleMath, a resource available only during the shutdown offering young minds  (grades K-5) a variety of math concepts using 'animated picture books online, then follow along with the included lesson plans or quizzes.'

 

Not a library member?  You can sign up for the virtual library card and will have 90 days (instead of 60) to visit a branch to trade it in for a full-service physical card

 

Good on you Anne Arundel County Public Library
