resources for families stuck at home during the pandemic

We'll be expanding this page as we find resources to help parents and children who are spending a lot more time at home while social distancing to slow the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Currently, Cosmic Bookshelf is able to offer these remote services:

- Parent education sessions

- Educator workshops and discussions

- Q+A sessions with groups

For children

activities, books, and resources for meaningful work and play at home

Our list of story times, drawing lessons, virtual tours, and other online resources for families trying to stay connected to the arts.

Every other weekday on our Instagram, we're sharing creative ways to make use of the books you already have at home. It's tough to come by books when libraries are closed and your favorite local indie has limited hours and services. We're getting inspired by the books on our shelves and sharing activities, crafts, and other book-ish ideas to get you and your family reading. Follow us on Instagram to stay up to date!
