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!
