City of Greater Sudbury Offers Online Resources for Learning and Fun

20-Apr-2020

As physical distancing becomes more important than ever to flatten the curve of COVID-19 in our community, the City of Greater Sudbury has created new online resources for individuals and families. Visit www.greatersudbury.ca/COVID for fun and educational activities from the Greater Sudbury Public Library, Children Services and Environmental Planning Initiatives.

“Municipal buildings may be temporarily closed but staff remain working to provide additional online resources for residents who are self-isolating at home,” said Greater Sudbury Mayor Brian Bigger. “Thank you to everyone who continues to practise physical distancing and stay home unless absolutely essential. Our online presence will be updated regularly to provide access to tools that are entertaining, educational and engaging for all ages.”

Greater Sudbury Public Library:

Digital books, magazines and video are free of charge with a Greater Sudbury Public Library card any time of day. To apply for a library card or for help with digital access, contact the Main Branch at 705-673-1155 to leave a message or submit a request online at www.sudburylibraries.ca or www.facebook.com/GSPLibrary.

There is an amazing collection of children’s activities on the GSPLibraryPrograms Facebook group. Dance to a local music video, listen to story time at a local library, visit Science North, start an art project and more.

Adults and seniors have their own Facebook group at GSPLibraryAdultPrograms. Learn new skills, explore local genealogy, practice yoga or tour virtual museums.

Children Services

City of Greater Sudbury Children Services offers important links to partner agencies for information about health, education, early childhood development and parental supports. Free learning platforms, links to favourite websites and community sharing on the sudburyfamilies.ca Facebook group are also available.

Environmental Planning Initiatives

Environmental Planning Initiatives has assembled online resources about local regreening and biodiversity programs, classroom presentations for grades 3 to 12, a virtual tour of the Jane Goodall Reclamation Trail and additional activities.

Together we can flatten the curve of the COVID-19 pandemic. For information about physical distancing during COVID-19, and the most accurate information, visit the Public Health Sudbury & Districts website at www.phsd.ca.
