Today’s resource of the day is one that might prove intriguing to our adult non-fiction readers out there. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, many academic and publishers of scholarly works have opened up access to thousands of e-books and articles for FREE through Project MUSE. You can find a list of publishers and begin browsing here: https://about.muse.jhu.edu/resources/freeresourcescovid19/
After the Sunday break, I’m back and ready to provide you with new online resources! Today’s resource is super fun for everyone! It’s the Aquarium of the Pacific’s webcams! Check out the various animal habitats with these live video streams! (I really enjoyed the penguins): http://www.aquariumofpacific.org/exhibits/webcams
Looking for more ebooks? Check out Biblioboard, a free e-book service that anyone standing in the state of Illinois can access! You do not even need a library card! There are no wait times; everything in it is readily available.

There’s a little something for everyone on Biblioboard.
