Timely Tip: LAUSD Students With Internet Access Can Still Use A Virtual LA Library
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.
Yes, we're closed physically, but all of our e-resources are available! All LAUSD students should have a free Student Success library card (sent to their home or school) that gives them access to all of our e-resources. 1/2— ✨Candice (she/her) 💻⚙️📚✨ (@tinylibrarian) March 14, 2020
Also, all LA residents are eligible for e-library cards, which give you instant access to our e-media & resources - https://t.co/4ujYDGETjW— ✨Candice (she/her) 💻⚙️📚✨ (@tinylibrarian) March 14, 2020
