It's tough to have the library closed--believe us, we know! But if you are looking for a few ideas to keep you busy while you stay safe at home, we've got you covered:
1. LEARN A NEW LANGUAGE. We subscribe to Transparent Language Online, a fabulous way to learn over 100 languages! Transparent Language Online provides a fun, effective, and engaging experience for learners of all levels looking to build their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills in a foreign language. It's completely FREE with your library card. Click here to try it out!
2. RESEARCH YOUR FAMILY TREE. We also subscribe to Ancestry Library, a genealogy resource normally only available in the library building. But the folks at Ancestry Library have made the content temporarily accessible from the comfort and safety of your own home. Click here to explore those branches!
3. FIND YOUR NEXT READ. NoveList Plus is a fun database that will help you find your next title to read. It's a trusted source of expert read-alike recommendations, available through libraries around the world. It has reading recommendations for both fiction and nonfiction for all ages. Their expertise in books and reading means that you'll always get the best help for finding just the right books. Click here to try it!
4. GET YOUR READING IN DIGITALLY. We know, you just can't bear to be without your books! Overdrive (or Libby, the easy-to-use app) can get you those titles you want digitally, in either print or audio. Check it out here!
