We know this year has been extremely hard on you and your students. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the way all of us live our lives in so many ways – and one of the most impacted areas is education.
While teachers have been working tirelessly to pivot to new ways of learning and teaching, Willard Library staff members have been seeking new ways to support teachers and students.
As a result, the Youth Services Department created a Virtual Menu for Educators featuring programs designed for pre-K, elementary, middle school, and high school educators. The programs range from virtual guest readers to an overview of database searching.
Educators may request a librarian to:
- Demonstrate how students can use their student ID number to access the library's digital apps and online content
- Make a virtual library visit
- Host a book club or book talks.
The Virtual Menu for Educators is available in print at the library or on the library's website here.
We definitely have missed in-person kindergarten visits, assisting with research projects, and visiting classrooms to talk about library services. While we are still unable to do that, we are excited about connecting with you in a new, creative way.
