A purpose for a library system to offer its patrons a website to reach out to patrons and other people who may not always be able to visit the library regularly. Also, librarians are portals to information from a broad spectrum of sources. For these and other reasons, the regional library offers a few digital resources to you that have been researched, viewed, or created by librarians.
Web Resources contains categories of subjects. Each subject is a link to another page that will contain numerous weblinks to some type of website that relates to the subject. There are over 20 subjects on this page and hundreds of links associated with these subjects.

If your vacation plans include a little light summer reading, you couldn’t ask for lighter fare this year. Most of us won’t be packing any physical books to go along on our vacations; we’ll just whip out some kind of device and download something. But while the downloads might be wispier than air itself, most books, digital downloads or not, still come with a hefty price tag.
