Check It Out: Try eResources other than books


Continuing on with last week’s message about free eResources available from the library, I want to let readers and viewers know that in addition to eBooks and eAudiobooks, library card holders also have access to movies, documentaries, TV shows, music, eComics and kids programming through a variety of resources such as Kanopy, Hoopla and Freegal. You can also view recent issues of your favorite, popular magazines digitally on your computer or personal device through Flipster. In other words, there is a lot of content available through the library even while we’re closed.

You might want to check out some of the creative reading lists available on OverDrive. If you’re a reader of westerns, take a look at the “Western Roundup” where you’ll find Louis L’Amour, Ralph Compton, Robert B. Parker and more. Like reading mysteries and also like cats? You’re in luck with the “Murder, She Meowed” list. This list is full of cozy mysteries with furry feline elements (by the way, if I had to vote for books with the cutest covers, these mysteries win every time, paws down).

We’ve also recently added more classics in eBook format, so if you fake-read titles such as “The Count of Monte Cristo” by Alexandre Dumas or “Middlemarch” by George Eliot during your school days, turn the current “Stay Home, Stay Safe” proclamation into a “catch-up-on-the-classics” opportunity. “Moby Dick” and “David Copperfield” await your undivided attention.
