Greenwich Library offers a wealth of resources for children, parents and teachers. To get started, click on the Children tab at the Greenwich Library website. In addition to a schedule of upcoming programs and featured staff-reviewed books, Greenwich Library offers a variety of information to help families. Open the Homework Help page to access age-appropriate databases such as Gale’s Infotrac Junior Edition (middle and high school), Kids Search (K-5th grade) and Discovering Collection (middle school) for help researching that report.
The Fun Stuff page offers literacy resources such as Bookflix (pre-K to grade 3), which pairs classic video storybooks with related nonfiction eBooks to encourage and build a love of reading and learning. Tumblebooks is a collection of animated, talking children’s books, which children may read themselves or follow along as the computer reads. Both services help develop and reinforce early reading skills while introducing children to a world of knowledge and exploration. This page also lists suggestions for selected online educational games and reading resources.
The Parents and Teachers page offers selected web resources on topics such as early literacy, special education, home schooling, health and internet safety. You’ll also find lesson plans, school readiness information and parenting resources.
