Digital resources for children

The Library’s children’s and teens’ services department is a bustling place that represents an important part of the Library’s activity. Children and their families are encouraged to make use of  our digital resources. While an online environment cannot replace a classroom, or a trip to a physical library, we hope this list of curated resources will be useful.

 

In accordance with the French government’s directives concerning Covid-19, the Library is currently closed. We are therefore unable to offer regular programming at this time. Normal services will resume when we reopen. We know that many parents, caregivers and educators are looking for ways to learn and engage from home. While an online environment cannot replace a classroom, or a trip to a physical library, we hope these resources will be useful.
