Welcome to Learn@Home from Windsor Public Library. Just as we would if you visited us in a library branch, we have gathered together a variety of resources from WPL’s digital collection as well as carefully chosen some trusted online sources to support or supplement your learning at home activities. The pages are arranged by grade and then subject in our menu at the top of the screen, and broken down into expectations from the Ontario government’s Ministry of Education curriculum; we have tried to give you a variety of options to ensure there is something for everyone. Please note a few things to keep in mind:
All Windsor Public Library e-resources are available at no charge through our website. Some of our products require that you download an app, and then create an account with another password. Others simply require that you sign in with your WPL card number and library PIN. Don’t have a library card? We can sign you up for an e-card.
Hoopla has a current limit of 20 titles per month per card; there are bonus materials also available.
Kanopy has a limit of 10 downloads per month, but Kanopy Kids (same site/app) is unlimited.
CloudLibrary has ebooks that work similarly to physical items; we own only so many copies of each title so it is possible titles won’t be available right away and you would need to place holds on items. There is a limit of 20 titles checked out and 20 titles on hold at one time; as you return an item you can check out another one.
Check out some of our videos on youtube to walk you through some of our services and resources. We are creating more all the time!
