Online resources for all the free time we now have

THIS LIST WILL BE UPDATED DAILY

These are challenging times, both professionally and personally, for every family around the world. Historically, quarantine and isolation meant total exclusion from the activities of our neighbors and everyone else on the planet. But the Internet has changed that somewhat.

We will be on the lookout for online sites and programs that will bring art, literature, news, and literally, a world of information to your phone or computer. If you find something that you think should be included, please send a link to ctlreads@ctlibrary.org and we will check it out.
