Each week our counselors will place 1-2 information links on this page for parents to view in an effort to help support household routines and family relationships.

Electronic Resources

The Dearborn Heights City Libraries have created a new YouTube page featuring stories and other activities in support of literacy. Students and families can view our stories and also get a link to more resources on our library website by visiting our channel, Dearborn Heights Libraries. Even better, Mr. Jim and Ms. Jennifer are the narrators, allowing the students to see familiar faces along with some of their favorite (and our favorite too!) books. DHL YouTube Channel

For Tumblebooks or Overdrive along with more free online stories go to Dearborn Heights Library
