Library Loop: Enjoy the library from home

Has the winter cold and snowfall put you inside, to warm yourself by a cozy fire? Although local librarians abroad provide library services, there is no need to leave the comfort of your home to take advantage of them. With your library card, you can access a catalog of eBooks and audiobooks to keep you entertained. Simply download the Libby app, enter your library card number, make your choice to borrow, and enjoy! For young children, reach for Tumblebooks, a collection of talking and animated picture books that teach young children the joys of reading in a format they love. You may also want to brush up on some skills or learn new ones on LinkedIn Learning.
