The Greenfield Branch Library is one of the many Monterey County Free Libraries that offer multiple no-cost services to the community. The library’s mission is to serve its community and bring ideas, inspiration, information, and enjoyment to the community. Unfortunately, children are less likely to participate in educational activities when their families struggle financially. This is the case for many families during the pandemic and its aftermath. The Children's Educational Online Workshop aimed to be free academic support for families who cannot afford it elsewhere. My educational workshop took place on April 26 and April 27 both at four pm, when most children were out of school. The ages of the kids ranged from four to fifteen years old. We completed learning worksheets together that included spelling, vocabulary, word and picture matching, and also the abc’s which many kids enjoyed. Which also allowed the workshop to be fun.
