Educational Resources for Students
Visit our new and improved Student Learning Resources page as your one-stop-shop for all things “Back to School.” From how to contact a librarian to what new educational materials are available for checkout, you can find it all here.
The Delaware County District Library has always been here to help when a parent, teacher, caregiver, tutor or friend is looking for help for a student in their life. Beyond books, the Library has offered research websites, training videos, personalized classroom visits, and more in order to offer assistance in a variety of subjects.
The Youth Services Department and the Community & Family Outreach Services Department lead the way in helping students on their journey of lifelong learning. Recently, these two departments have been working diligently to create a one-stop website to help answer your educational questions.
The first thing you’ll find on the Student Learning Resources page is that librarians are easy to reach, whether it’s through an email, a phone call, or the chat function on our website. Our tried and true programs like lending Wi-Fi-enhanced Chromebooks to students and helping you find databases and online research websites will stay the same. Librarians will also continue to help teachers and parents request multiple books to help deepen a study on a specific subject or topic.
New this year, the Delaware Library is happy to offer our students free printing for any of their at-home learning needs. Printed document requests can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded to our remote printing page. Additionally, our librarians are ready to virtually visit your school or at-home learning classrooms. They love to give book recommendations, read a story or two, provide an introduction to our services, or give a virtual tour.
We’ve increased the materials in our collection that will help students practice new skills they’re learning. Workbooks, flashcards and other books like encyclopedias and world atlases are a click away. Educators are encouraged to either stop by or request a workbook, then copy the pages they need for their students. Flashcards include subjects ranging from telling time and sight words, to money basics and division.
Finally, our librarians have put together a robust list of trusted partner websites and organizations that will enhance learning at home. These resources are all listed on the Student page, and they’ll be featured in this fall’s “Check It Out” newsletter.
Though the educational landscape can sometimes feel daunting to navigate, it can be as easy as starting with a phone call to your local Delaware Library and asking for help from a librarian.
The Delaware County District Library serves as the public information provider for our community, using traditional and innovative technology to encourage curiosity, free inquiry, and lifelong learning in a friendly environment.
