Brainfuse webinar on Addressing Learning Loss

On Tuesday, September 14 8:00 PM, HelpNow by Brainfuse will be offering a learning-focused workshop on Addressing COVID Learning Loss with Dr. Danny Diaz, Ed. D., the director of the UCLA History-Geography project.

With all the conversations about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on “learning loss”, how can parents manage their stresses and fears in order to provide the kind of support our youth need at this moment? Drawing on his experiences in education and recent research, Danny Diaz will discuss how we can best address concerns around learning loss. This is a free workshop offered by HelpNow from Brainfuse.

This is not a Canton Public Library program, but a webinar offered through HelpNow by Brainfuse. To register, visit this link

The workshop will be recorded and added to the Brainfuse HelpNow website for those who cannot attend live/would like to review.

March is Reading Month, and in celebration CPL staff are looking back at the books that first sparked our love of reading. What book made you love reading?

Tee V.: I remember reading the Junie B. Jones series when I was in first grade and falling in love with her spunky attitude and great sense of style, reading the whole series that was out to that point made me a voracious reader!

Maniac Magee : a novel by Jerry Spinelli

Whitney J.: It was the first book that made me think deeply about the social institutions in our country – race, class, gender, and more. I read it at least three times in elementary school and it’s still important to me today because of the ways that it opened my eyes to the world.
