RESOURCES TO HELP STAVE OFF BOREDOM AND CABIN FEVER.
This is a challenging time for not only our community, but our state, country and world. With closures of both community resources and schools already in place and potentially needing to shelter in place, we’ve put together this list of resources you can access though your computer.
There are sites specifically for child and adult education, downloadable books, movies, fascinating YouTube channels, TV and audios, craft ideas and more.
If you’ve discovered any additional resources you’d like to share with our community, email your suggestion to firstname.lastname@example.org, feel free to add an introduction we could share. Please begin your email subject line with “WEB_ …” and a short description.
