At-Home Learning Resources

We know that many parents are continuing their child’s education from home while schools are closed. We salute your efforts! To support that work, The Rosenbach will be posting curriculum-based lessons and hands-on activities for families with children in grades 3-12 to help them connect with The Rosenbach’s extraordinary collection of historic letters and rare books. When possible, we will make connections with existing online curriculum.

Please contact the Rosenbach’s Director of Education, Emilie Parker via email at [email protected] with any questions or suggestions.

You can also find additional resources for at-home learning through the Free Library of Philadelphia.
