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.”
