Libraries’ virtual offerings
Library branches may be closed, but you can still tap into their resources from home.
Here are a few of the many offerings:
The New York Public Library, which covers Manhattan, the Bronx and Staten Island, has free one-on-one tutoring for kindergartners to 12th graders. The effort is a partnership with Brainfuse, an online tutoring organization.
The tutoring is available from 2 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily. Educational videos about a variety of subjects, including basic math, organic chemistry and essay writing, are also online. There are free test-prep videos.
