Cobb Schools & Cobb Library Partner to Extend Digital Learning Resources
For the past two years, Cobb students have been able to use their student IDs as county library passes, which is especially useful now while schools are closed. Although the 16 Cobb library locations are also currently closed to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, Cobb students can still access digital learning resources on our library website, cobbcat.org.
Cobb offers a robust range of online digital resources for all ages. Students and families are encouraged to use the library from home to find eBooks, eAudios, digital magazines, streaming videos, language courses and more.
Access to the digital resources is free for Cobb library cardholders and through the Library PASS program providing Cobb County and Marietta City students library accounts. Start exploring the library’s digital resources today by visiting cobbcat.org.
The library’s website also includes a list of children’s authors and illustrators who are taking to the web to offer fun interactive activities such as live readings and drawings.
Online tutoring services available for free
In response to school closures during the COVID-19 pandemic, the daily hours for availability of TutorATL’s online tutors expanded to 9 a.m. - 11 p.m. TutorATL features personalized homework help and expert tutors in more than 50 subjects with bilingual offerings. On-demand access to tutors has doubled with morning and early afternoon sessions added.
Cobb County Public Library offers TutorATL for free to kindergarten-12th grade students with regular Cobb library cards or through Library Public Library Access for Student Success accounts.
