Educational & Entertainment Resources Available to Families

Columbia, SC– With schools remaining closed across South Carolina and students finishing the academic year virtually, Richland Library is offering resources to support learning from home.

Here’s a quick refresher of some educational services that are available with a library card:

  • Miss Humblebee’s Academy – This interactive kindergarten-readiness program introduces children, ages three to six, to key concepts in math, science, social studies, language and literacy, art, and music.
  • – Students from kindergarten through college can connect with a live tutor daily for help with homework.
  • Mango Languages – Lessons include audio and visual learning methods that are suited to all language learners. From Spanish and French to Brazilian Portuguese and Mandarin Chinese, there are more than 70 languages to choose from.

There are plenty of activities to explore as a family too, such as:

  • Family Storytime – Join us 10:30 a.m., Saturdays on the library’s Facebook page as we share books and build early literacy skills.
  • Richland Library Bingo or Indoor/Outdoor Scavenger Hunt – Parents can keep the minds of their little ones engaged with these entertaining handouts.
  • Kanopy for Kids – This diverse collection contains educational and entertaining content. View movies, TV series, animated storybooks, live action and animated favorites.
