As we experience an unprecedented period of isolation, Delaware Humanities has been impressed and inspired by the way communities and organizations are coming together to share and create resources. Below we have gathered a two lists — one of educational resources for kids (and their adults!) who are learning now at home, and the other for anyone who may need a little bit of connection right now.
Discovered a resource not on this list? Contact us and we’d be happy to add it!
