PBS:  The New York State Education Department and New York’s nine public television stations announced today that expanded educational resources and “Learn-at-Home” programming is now available for all of New York’s students in response to school closings across the state. In addition, NYSED has launched a dedicated website featuring remote continuity of learning<http://www.nysed.gov/edtech/continuity-learning> resources to provide districts and teachers with increased options.

Students from prekindergarten through 12th Grade will have access to PBS educational programming every weekday starting Monday, March 23rd on-air. These efforts will help ensure that all students can “Learn-at-Home”, whether they have a computer or broadband at home.

Pre-K and young learners can still watch familiar shows like Sesame Street. Elementary student broadcast schedules include trusted programs like Wild Kratts, Peg + Cat, and Cyberchase. Middle school and high school programming include shows like Nova, History Detectives, and Shakespeare Uncovered. As always, many additional programs are also available to stream on the free PBS Video and PBS KIDS Video apps.

Parents and educators should check local listings for their local public television stations for additional information on schedules and channel lineup. You can find your local PBS station by using the PBS Station Finder.<http://www.pbs.org/about/stations>

New York’s educators and parents can continue to access free educational resources that supplement and augment learning on the website, PBSLearningMedia.org.  PBS LearningMedia provides original digital content and supplemental viewing guides for on-air programming that assist in learning. New special collections have been created for each grade level to make it easy for parents and teachers to select appropriate content if they are new to using the service. Webinars and online support materials have already been taking place and will continue to help educators make use of PBS LearningMedia as a distance learning tool.

A recommendation from Adult Reference Librarian, Christine:

I love visiting Newport, Rhode Island and I go there at least once a year to stroll the Cliff Walk, take a ride down Ocean Drive, visit the mansions, and shop the quaint stores along the waterfront.  I was thrilled when I discovered the Gilded Newport mystery series by Alyssa Maxwell.  It features the main character of Emmaline Cross, an amateur sleuth who investigates murders that occur at the summer “cottages” of wealthy families of the time, such as the Vanderbilts.  When I read this series, I feel like I am right there in the book since I recognize a lot of the places and streets the author talks about.  This series is on the cozy side, without a lot of violence or gore, but it is filled with action and keeps your interest.  To learn more about the author and this series, visit:  https://www.alyssamaxwell.com/. Available in Hoopla in ebook format, start with the first book in the series:  Murder at the Breakers.
