Learning Resources for Children

 

November 9th, we will explore a variety of digital resources provided by Atlanta Fulton Library System (AFPLS) designed for every age group from preschool to upper elementary and middle school. The most inclusive of these resources may be found on Galileo, the state university system’s sponsored site complete with hundreds of databases. The purpose of this page is to provide a road map for parents to choose where to consult resources appropriate for their children.
