Virtual Learning Help for Students (and Parents!)

As Labor Day is quickly approaching, that means that most public-school-attending students will be back at school. The unique question that this school year brings to the table is one that needs no exposition…

How will virtual learning work?

Thankfully for my wife and I, our children are 3 ½ years old and 3 months old, so we do not have to worry about answering that question this year. A lot of my family and friends, however, have had to deal with some real stress surrounding that question. If you live in the Fox Valley and have children in grade-school, there are some helpful resources that the Neenah Public Library is hoping could help alleviate some of that stress.

The Neenah Public Library is offering resources for both students and parents alike in order to combat the unique schooling situation that most people find themselves in. One thing that they are doing is offering curriculum-based books for a variety of different subjects. This is in hopes that students will be able to grasp the information better than just by reading it in a textbook. Students can receive books that teach based on their specific learning style as well.

There are also virtual options that the library is offering. Some of which include virtual story time, puppet shows, and take-and-create kits for younger students. E-books are also available for students of all ages.

For the parents, there are helpful resources that can allow you to better teach, tutor, or help your children if they are attending school virtually. One of those resources reviews books, learning apps, shows, and movies so you never need to be in the dark when it comes to where your children are getting their knowledge from. There are also helpful tips on their website on how you can better instruct your kids.

The Neenah Public Library is open to the public from 10am – 4pm, Mon-Sat.

They also offer curbside pickup from 9am – 7 pm on Mon-Thurs, 9am – 5pm on Fridays, and 10am – 4pm on Saturdays. In order to ensure a smooth pickup, you will need to follow the list below:

1) Place the hold online

2) Wait for a notification that your selections are available

3) Park in a marked spot in the parking lot

4) Call the library and wait for them to drop off the materials outside of your vehicle
