Learning at Home

When students are out of school, learning doesn’t have to stop! There are lots of resources to help you keep your kids learning while they’re at home. For instance, you can sign up to receive free books delivered to your home for children, birth to age 5. Haga clic aquí para registrarse para recibir libros gratuitos entregados a su casa para niños de 0 a 5 años. Or learn about resources from Durham County Library (haga clic aquí para saber de recursos de la Biblioteca del Condado de Durham).

Please note: we’re updating this page regularly, and we’re happy to receive your suggestions for links that might be a good fit: info@bookharvest.org.

Below are other resources (mostly online) we recommend:

And of course, keep reading! Many local libraries offer ways to check out books online for free while you’re not able to come to our office or head to your local library to get books. If you’re a Durham County resident, visit the Durham County Library page to find out how to check out e-books and how to get a temporary library card, if you don’t already have one. If you don’t live in Durham, check your local library’s website for details.
