NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Back-to-school is in full-swing and it can be hectic and expensive. The Nashville Public Library wants to remind parents, they have free resources for families.
"Back-to-school is an important time for families and it's important time for libraries. It's a busy time. Every year around this time we have families coming in asking questions about back-to-school resources and things that they can do to help their children with reading at home," said librarian Greg Hall.
Hall says parents can pick up "Playaway Bookpacks" for free. The packs include books, as well as their audio versions, which he says can help with reading comprehension.
If you're looking to teach tech to your little student, you can also check out "launch pads." They come pre-loaded with learning apps and games.
And they didn't forget about parents. "Ready Rosie" is an online service that helps bring learning into the home using everyday chores.
