Ben’s Guide relaunches
In collaboration with our own AASL, the Government Printing Office just updated and redesigned its Ben’s Guide to the U.S. Government.
This new portal is designed to inform students, parents, and educators about the Federal Government, which issues the publications and information products disseminated by the GPO’s Federal Depository Library Program.
Mobile friendly, the website includes content and activities for ages four to eight, nine to 13 and 14+. A Games section offers downloadable crosswords and a tetris-like Branch-O-Mania game.
Libraries can download and add a handy Ben’s Guide badge to their websites.
