Big thanks to our Burlington Public Library!
The Burlington K-5 Remote Academy partnered with the Burlington Public Library to host its first socially-distanced community event, a "Pop-Up" library outside the BPL. Students from all of the grades participated, getting a chance to meet classmates for the first time and checkout books of all genres and reading levels. The Burlington librarians were outstanding, providing concierge service to our students, guiding them to stacks of books put out in the BPL front yard on portable shelves. They served over 50 of the 400 Remote Academy students that participated over the three hour pop-up timeline.
The library has also been an outstanding ally for the Remote Academy, facilitating their frequent classroom material distributions through their curbside pick-up program. The Burlington Public Schools are deeply appreciative of the Burlington Library's efforts to help facilitate a successful launch the Academy. Consider checking out their online catalog, including many new arrivals, and try out their curbside pickup if you haven't already done so!
