It’s Tuesday Tea at the Library! On FDR’s birthday, take a few homeschool minutes to visit the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library in Hyde Park, New York—and share this post with your friends!
Tuesday is Books & Libraries Day at the River Houses. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, was born on this day (30 January) in 1882, so why not pay a visit today to the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library in Hyde Park, New York. Here’s the library’s own website, with historical documents, photos, and much more:
“The Library’s mission is to foster research and education on the life and times of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, and their continuing impact on contemporary life.”
The library’s website also has a special page of educational resources that will come in handy for homeschool students and teachers:
¶ Little lessons: You can find a little summary of Franklin Roosevelt’s life and presidency on pages 494–495 in your River Houses almanac (riverhouses.org/books)—just right for an educational read-aloud minute.
What have you discovered at your library lately?
¶ Books in the running brooks: The sidebar on the River Houses website (riverhouses.org) has links to several important online library collections that we like to explore. The WorldCat Library Finder will help you find all the libraries in your local area, and WorldCat itself (worldcat.org) will help you locate the nearest copy of any book you please.
