It can be a struggle to find things to do during this time of quarantine. I’ve compiled a list of resources that I’ve found, a lot of them I got from Peters Township Public Library’s website.
Most libraries have an abundance of digital resources from online classes to audiobooks, e-books, and movies. Be sure to check out your local library’s website. If you don’t have a library card, don’t worry. A lot of library cards are giving patrons the option of obtaining an e-card so they can still access online resources.
