Library from Home

As we find ourselves isolated and indoors, there are a number of digital resources available to you provided by the SRS library and local public libraries. There are also some enrichment ideas for students, teachers, and families. If you have any questions about how to access any of these resources, please reach out by email:

For Everyone

  • Did you know ALL Massachusetts residents can get a Boston Public Library e-card? You don't have to go to Boston to sign up! Go to to get access to e-books, streaming video, and much more.

    Even though public libraries are closed, you can still access public library resources with your library card number. Go to your public library website or to see what is available.

For Students

  • "Have you read this?!?!" For fans of history or Hamilton: An American Musical, there is a new program to explore and create through EduHam at Home. From the debut of the musical, schools have been invited to see the show and create their own songs related to primary documents from Hamilton, Eliza, Washington, and more. Lin Manuel Miranda and the Gilder Lehrman Institute put together a program for students to create their own Hamilton inspired videos. They are going to pick ten every week to share on their website and one will be shared on the Hamilton social media pages! You can sign up for free here.
  • Try your hand at 3D printing! Sign up for a free account with TinkerCad. Design what you want to print and we'll print it when we return to school. Need help or support? Join the library drop in hours from 11:00am-1:00pm Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday.
  • Join the Games Club on Monday and Friday at 11:00am to play table top games through online apps. SRS students and their families are invited to play. Email Ms. Y or Mr. Pearsons for more information. Join our club Team through Mircosoft 365 for the latest updates.
  • Have you ever wanted to learn a new language? Maybe you love K-Pop and want to learn Korean, or you're a fan of Anime and want to learn Japanese, or your parents or grandparents speak another language and you want to learn more. Connect with others who want to learn other languages through the new Language Learning club. We'll use Duolingo courses to motivate each other to stay engaged and active in learning. Join the club team through Microsoft 365.

For Families

  • To augment online learning, or for students who have limited or no access to online technology, WGBH is producing a daily block of educational programming on the WGBH and WGBY WORLD CHANNELS, beginning on March 23.

    WGBH WORLD can be found on Comcast 956; FiOS 473; RCN 94; Cox 807, and Charter 181. WGBY WORLD is broadcast over-the-air on channel 57.2 and on Comcast 209. Spectrum carries it in the Pioneer Valley on 181 and in the Berkshires on 1275. This block of programs will run from noon to 5pm ET, and was put together for middle and high school students.
    Note that each program has associated optional related resources for online learning.
