Running out of things to do during this social distancing period? If you’ve already used up all of your free trials of streaming services, it might be time to check out some new content. Most of us remember the days of borrowing books from the public library, but many of us forget that our local libraries offer online services as well.
You can borrow thousands of e-books, audiobooks, movies, and magazines from the public library online. From science fiction to children’s literature, your local library offers a lot more than you ever imagined. Thanks to third-party digital platforms like Over Drive, Hoopla, NC Kids Digital Library, and RB Digital, you can access a multitude of free content at your fingertips. You can even access language-learning software Mango Languages with over 70 world language courses and over 17 ESL/ELL courses, featuring an engaging user interface, voice comparison, and foreign language films.
If you don’t have a physical card, you can sign up for a free virtual library card online. Check out the selections from Charlotte Mecklenburg Library’s official site.
