Josie Huang has been out all day talking to parents facing weeks without school and, yes, they're scrambling to figure out what's next.

One response to her tweets about what she was hearing, was this excellent reminder: Los Angeles libraries may have shut the doors to their facilities, but they remain available virtually for those with access to the internet.

[Note: We realize there's still a big digital divide in our area. In South L.A. for example, only about half of the residents reported having a broadband connection at home in a 2017 USC study]

But if you can access the web, the virtual library may prove a great resource.
