Stressbusters from McKillop librarians
The librarians and staff at McKillop Library know that it’s probably the end of a long week for everyone after this first full week of Virtual Salve! This is why we decided to compile a list of some fun things for you to check out from the library — even remotely!
So read below to find a movie, a funny story, or e-book that will resonate with you and help to lighten the mood on this first Friday of remote learning.
McKillop Library’s e-book collection
Search for our vast collection of e-books to read during your free time using the library’s home page. You’ll find something interesting to past the time, we just know it!
The Library’s movies and videos
