Additional Resources

We are excited to offer special access to additional electronic resources in response to school closures and stay-at-home orders in our community. Please keep in mind that some of these resources are offered for a limited time only.

Educational and e-Learning Resources

Our librarians have compiled a Google Doc with a list of child-appropriate resources for virtual learning. Feel free to download, print and share!


NCLearn@Home ( is a new website designed to gather online content and educational resources into one place for teachers, students, parents, and anyone needing enriching experiences, regardless of their location.

Here you’ll find lesson plans, educator resources, State Library and State Archives collections, and virtual assistance from state librarians and educators, as well as offerings from our state’s natural and cultural institutions.

Virtually visit the North Carolina Zoo, aquariums, a state park or state historic site through an NC360 tour.

Listen to podcasts on history, art and nature; watch concert videos from some amazing North Carolina artists; watch educational and fun Livestream presentations; virtually tour museum exhibits; or watch past concerts from the North Carolina Symphony.

From the art museum to the zoo, each part of our department has fun, educational and amazing online content to share.

“Now more than ever, during this time of uncertainty, and when we have to be more physically separated from one another, it’s important that we are able to connect with art, culture, history and nature in a tangible and meaningful way,” said Susi Hamilton, secretary of the N.C. Department of Natural and Cultural Resources. “Until we’re able to welcome visitors back to our museums, historic sites, zoo, aquariums and other North Carolina cultural institutions, we hope that these resources will help keep North Carolinians informed, engaged and entertained.”
