Here is a video interview with Multnomah County Youth Librarian Brianne Williams: Summer Reading Game and an open access copy.
In addition, here is an email I recieved from Brianne Williams our youth librarian at the Sellwood Branch of the Multnomah County Librarian:Hi Laura,I wanted to make sure you knew about these resources from Multnomah County Library that might be useful for your families:This infographic explains how to use your phone number to get an immediate library card so you can access free ebooks from home using the Libby app. I've attached a pdf of the same infographic in Spanish.We're buying more copies of ebooks every day, but use is also increasing, so your families may have to place holds on ebooks. If they are looking for something that is available immediately, here is a list of the ebooks for kids and teens that are ALWAYS available because we have unlimited copies of them.If your families want access to more than ebooks (like our streaming services like Kanopy and Hoopla or our language learning software like Mango Languages or Tumblebooks' Read-along picture books), they can get a full-access library card remotely now, on the library's website.Please let me know if there is anything else we can do to support you! This is such a tough time for families and schools and I'd love to help out.Take good care of yourself,Brianne
