Independent Reading During Distance Learning
At this time, there is no requirement for independent reading, but remember that the absolute best way to become a better reader, writer, speaker, and thinker is to develop the habit of being a reader.
Even though we are practicing social distancing and are learning online, we can still access a rich and varied selection of library books online.
Do you have a library card? If not, consider applying for one online.
