April Spotlight - Online Resources from the Winnipeg Public Library
While our physical libraries are currently closed, the spotlight this month is on online resources at the Winnipeg Public Library. The Library has many different types of eMedia available to check out with your library card. Check out the Kids' eMedia page for links to online eBooks, eAudiobooks, movies, music, and more. Linked below are two new info guides that have been created by the Winnipeg Public Library to provide up to date information on online resources for having fun at home, and staying informed about Covid-19.
In the At Home: A Click Away info guide Library staff have gathered free online resources so that kids and adults can stay connected while staying home. Find online activities from a wide variety of authors, artists, and organizations. Check back often, as new resources are added frequently.
The Parents & Caregivers page of the Coronavirus Disease info guide has information about talking to children about Covid-19, as well as links to information from the provincial and federal governments.
