How to Use this LibGuide

The purpose of this LibGuide is to help adults find resources available online from reliable sources. The content you see on this site has been curated by your local librarians. The Boston Public Library has many online resources available that you can use from home without having to leave your home. We will continue to add resources and this LibGuide will change over time. We hope that this is a tool you can use at home to keep busy, informed and most important, simply having some fun.
