Categories: Featured

This will be a school year like no other. The transition to remote learning is daunting and the challenges are unfamiliar. Don’t worry; you’re not alone. Chicago Public Library is here to help.

Parents and caregivers-turned homeschoolers have so many questions that range from “How do I balance managing my work while helping my children with theirs?” to “Am I doing enough to support my child’s education?” We understand the anxieties and uncertainties of remote learning. That is why Chicago Public Library is here to provide accessible and free resources to make learning at home more manageable and for the whole family:

Brainfuse: Students can get live homework help and online tutoring from 11 am to 11 pm daily. All you need is a library card!

Choose My Plate: Build healthy eating habits for children and the whole family in fun and exciting ways.

Color Fun: Do you need an activity in between class sessions? Print out these coloring pages by local artist Steve Musgrave.

Khan Academy: What even is new math? Learn short math and science lessons through online video courses and practice exercises.

Little Pim:  You and the kids can learn a new language while bonding.

Live from the Library: Join the Library’s virtual story time and read along with actors, athletes, musicians, news anchors, and special guests like President Barack Obama and former First Lady Michelle Obama, Oprah, John C. Riley and so much more.
