Digital Resources Mean the Library is Still Open

When we hear the word "library" with think of rows and rows of books. Maybe we add in a reading area with magazines and newspapers. But we often don't think about the digital resources that are available via our libraries.

There are many resources available through our school library, public libraries, and state resources. While our physical library is out-of-order, so to speak, we still have all of these digital assets at our fingertips.

Below are a few of the resources that you can still access via the internet. You can contact me for login information for any of these resources, aolson[@] (without the brackets)
