Attention Teachers, Parents & Students

Just announced today:  the Internet Archive is offering one compelling alternative: a "National Emergency Library". The link is as follows: http://https://archive.org/details/nationalemergencylibrary.
According to an NPR feature article, "The nonprofit group, which has made some 4 million books available online for free,...is suspending waitlists for the 1.4 million works in its lending library. The move expedites the borrowing process through the end of June ("or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later") for anybody worldwide who'd like one of those books — be they students, teachers or just average readers bored out of their wits in quarantine."
 
You can create an account for FREE.  Our librarian just ran a few sample searches and found a wealth of books for all ages:  picture books, readers, young adult research materials.
