I Can Read! books contain some of the most beloved characters in the history of children’s literature, many created by award-winning authors and illustrators.
In this unprecedented moment, as New Yorkers head back to school—whether in person, from home, or a blend of both—The New York Public Library is here to support kids of all ages, educators, and parents and caregivers with a range of online resources. Discover free online homework help, virtual story time, reading suggestions, learning aids, and fun, engaging activities to help maintain and grow your skills.
The 2020-2021 school year is going to look different for families across the country. As local communities create plans to keep kids safe and healthy, some classes might be in person, some classes might be online, and some classes might just be... uncertain. PBS KIDS is here to help no matter what learning situation your family is facing this year. Every week, we’ll provide a new at-home learning topic with activities, games, and articles — featuring your favorite PBS KIDS characters like Daniel Tiger, Elmo, and the Kratt brothers — to keep your child learning through play. Find ways to play.
In 2019, The Brant Foundation opened its second space in New York City with a major exhibition of works by Jean-Michel Basquiat (1960-1988). Radical in both his artistic practice and life, Basquiat made the streets of Lower Manhattan his studio, joining the creative outpour that was emerging in the late 1970s and 80s in New York City. Basquiat’s place in the East Village art scene remains absolute and for the first time in decades, this exhibition brought his work back to the same neighborhood that inspired it.
Hunter, Jose and I were able to experience this exhibit in person and now it is available virtually. We enjoyed it then and hope you can too (from home)!
NYC schools will adhere to a mix of online and in- person learning come September. There are various scheduling possibilities, and one is completely remote for those parents who would feel more comfortable keeping their children at home.
From July 15 to August 7, moms and dads have the option to apply for all-remote learning for autumn by completing the Learning Preferences survey or calling 718-935-2200. Students will not need a medical reason to opt into this plan.
According to the survey, families are able to make changes:

OLogy can be helpful to engage your child in standards-aligned online content during this challenging time.

Developed by NYPL as an open source initiative, now other libraries can provide a consolidated and clear view of their e-book collections.
We know the Library is a critical resource for New Yorkers of all ages, which is why they have taken steps to expand access to their online offerings while their branches are temporarily closed.
New York residents can apply for a New York Public Library card through SimplyE to gain access to an array of digital resources, including e-books and audiobooks, as well as databases available from home during their period of closure.
A N.Y. STATE OF MIND
New York has been hit hard by the current global crisis. In partnership with Governor Cuomo, HEADSPACE wants to be here for you — to help you find some time and space as you weather this storm.
This special NY collection of meditation, sleep, and movement exercises are here to support you through stressful and challenging times. Helping you — and your fellow New Yorkers — stay strong and be kind to yourselves, with a New York state of mind.
REMOTE LEARNING DEVICES AVAILABLE
To help students stay connected during emergencies, the DOE is lending internet-enabled iPads to support remote learning for students.
The DOE will use the contact information you provide to get in touch with you to discuss when and where you can pick up a device. Priority will be given to students most in need, and all devices are granted on a temporary basis and will later need to be returned. There is a limit of one device per student.
