    The library service in Northamptonshire has just posted...

    Free subscription resources:
    Reference websites for which we have paid the fee so that Library users can benefit from access. Some sites now available from home include dictionaries, newspaper archives, business and information and more!


    Worth checking with your local Library services to see if you can gain free access to those usually available only in the Library. You will need your Library card number to log on to them. :)

    A number of the States in the USA are doing it, but not all of them are on board yet.

    Why not email Hillingdon and suggest it to them? They would be doing their bit to help folk in social distancing and you could tell them that other councils are doing it. ;)

    I have reservations for 4 digital books from our library service which will be available next month, hopefully at weekly intervals. Haven't checked their reference section yet although most of it is available already, only FMP is for use in library only ( now closed of course)
