KDL wants to support parents as they navigate this new paradigm in teaching.
That’s why we created this new page, where all of our learning resources reside. Some of them will be familiar and others are new, brought to you by KDL staff who have been busy behind the scenes creating content for online storytimes, booktalks, and much more.
If you don't have a KDL card, you can apply for an online-only card that will grant you 90 days of access to our digital collection and research databases. As a requirement to apply, you need to live in the KDL Service Area and be at least 18 years old.
