Resources for Parents, Students, and Educators
The mission of the Monroe County Library System is to enrich the quality of life for all residents by providing free access to informational, educational, and recreational resources.
During the challenges brought on by COVID-19, the Library is actively striving to support parents and students in search of educational resources. The following collection of reliable Library resources have been refined especially for children, middle and high school students, college students, adults preparing for certification or extended education, and educators.
These resources are available for you to access from home. Some may require your library card number or Michigan State Driver’s License to log in. If you need a card, you can download a Library Card Registration Form form and return it to your local branch.
The following list is merely the start of the extensive educational resources the Library provides. To explore all of our databases, visit our Online Resources page.
