Fun Activities

Bound to Stay Bound wants you to know that during these unprecedented school closures, we are here to support educators, parents, students, and our community in any way we can.  Librarians and teachers are experiencing the challenging task of converting resources to adapt to remote learning situations, and we would like to assist in making this transition easier.  Our resources specialist team has worked diligently to compile a list of academic resources for students while they learn from home.
