JMRL launches webpage to assist students and families

JMRL has created a webpage to connect students, teachers, and families with a variety of library resources to support virtual learning.

The Learn at Home webpage features links to helpful databases, booklists, Homework Help, social media pages, eBooks, eAudiobooks, Ask a Librarian and more.

Young Adult Services Manager Tim Carrier said the webpage encompasses a wide variety of JMRL services all in one spot.

“With at-home learning being a big part of this school year, we thought it would be beneficial for educators, parents, and students if we pulled together those resources in one place for quick access,” he said.

“We hope this page and its links will be useful to the community as the school year progresses.”

JMRL to offer Free Comic Books

This year, Free Comic Book Day will be Free Comic Book November at the Jefferson-Madison Regional Library!  

In partnership with Telegraph Art & Comics, the Library will offer a variety of free comics for kids, teens, and adults to be selected online and picked up during curbside service from November 9 – 30, while supplies last.

Patrons can choose up to five comics starting November 9. Then contact their branch to pick them up via contactless curbside service.

“JMRL has participated in Free Comic Book Day for many years,” said Young Adult Services Manager Tim Carrier.

“We’re delighted to be able to observe the event this year, even though it’s a little different from the past.”
