With several facilities, schools and arts venues closed we want to keep building community and providing resources to people on our website and in print.

A lot of people are sending things out on social media. we want to provide a place people can look to both for reliable news and information as well as community engagement.

This page will be home to educational tips, tricks, activities and tools for parents and caregivers to do with their children — an example would be videos people post of storytime, or other early learning resources.

The intent is to give people a reliable place they can go for educational activities without relying on scrolling through social media.

The idea is to build community and continue to provide resources people can access despite closures of facilities around them.
