For the past two years, Cobb students have been able to use their student IDs as a county library pass, which will be especially useful now while schools are closed. Although the 16 Cobb library locations are also currently closed to help prevent the spread of the Coronavirus, Cobb students can still access digital learning resources on the Cobb County Public Library website.
“We appreciate the ongoing partnership with the Cobb County Public Library and the opportunity it provides our school families to access critical learning resources. The more digital tools we can provide, the more successful Cobb students will be while they are learning from home,” said Jennifer Lawson, Cobb Schools Chief Academic Officer.
Cobb County Public Library offers a robust range of online digital resources for all ages. Students and families are encouraged to use the Library from home to find eBooks, eAudios, digital magazines, streaming videos, language courses, and more for all ages.
Access to the digital resources is free for Cobb library cardholders and through the Library PASS program providing Cobb County and Marietta City students Cobb library accounts. Start exploring the Library’s digital resources today.
The library’s website also includes a list of children’s authors and illustrators who are taking to the web to offer live readings, drawings, and more.
“Our library team has aggressively dived into promoting awareness of Cobb library’s digital resources for students, educators, and families over the past several days,” said Cobb County virtual librarian Shannon Tyner. “Cobb librarians and library workers have long had strong connections with the CCSD community, and those communication channels will be open during these challenging days. This collaboration is always important. Today, it’s critical.”
