Updated 6/1/20. We’ll be updating this post on an ongoing basis, with interesting and/or fun content that we find on the WWW. If you may have missed it, see our earlier “explore the Web” post.

For Kids

Daily sing-alongs with Matt Heaton at 10AM. Move to the rhythm of new songs and rhymes with Miss Nina – new videos every Tuesday. See our “Subject Guide” for Children, for more possibilities. (Some resources require a Belmont card).

Space Exploration

Follow what’s happening with the Crew Dragon capsule at NASA.gov. Watch videos of previous missions. Check out Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Read this article from CNET listing 18 cool sites and apps where you can learn more about space.

Cultural Exhibits
