Need a Diversion?However, since we understand the need for diversions during this unprecedented time of social distancing, the library has several on-line options available to our patrons. Libraries and companies that support them have developed multiple resources that will allow patrons access to e-books, audio books and various videos. LinksOn this website we have posted links to these resources on our Catalog page (“E Resources”).
These resources require a library card and password (which is your 10-digit phone number without hyphens)
• SimplyE (ebooks)
• OverDrive (ebooks and audiobooks; for best results use the “Libby” app)
• rbDigital (magazines)
• Librivox (audiobooks)
• Learning Express (resources for elementary, middle and high school students)
The following, while possibly only temporarily available, do NOT require a library card:
• TumbleBookLibrary (animated, talking picture books)
• TumbleBookMath (math picture book, lesson plans and quizzes)
• TeenBookCloud (grades 7-12 ebook database)
• AudioBookCloud (unlimited streaming access to the on-line collection)
• RomanceBookCloud (a huge collection of steamy romance novels)
We are working on permission to access Ancestry.com from your home computer. We will let you know when this is available. In addition, we are hard at work on a daily StoryTime, in the tradition of Wee Fun Friday. Again, we will let you know when and how to access this resource.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Rest assured that your Comfort Public Library is keeping the needs of our valuable patrons in our thoughts!
