National Library Week - Find the Library at Your Place

It’s National Library Week!!!

Like many other libraries across the world, Leeward Library has adjusted our operations in response to COVID-19, but that doesn’t mean we’ve stopped connecting you to the resources you need to learn, enjoy, and ultimately succeed! For this year’s National Library Week, we celebrate by bringing you virtual experiences and digital resources that explore a wealth of knowledge across the globe. And the greatest part? You can enjoy it all from wherever you are. As the world transforms around us, remember that you will no doubt find your place at the library, even when you find the library at your place!

If you read our teaser post last week and saw nothing on our National Library Week page [New Window] . . . the page is now a-live! We’ve packed in quite a few activities, virtual and physical, you can do at home.

  • Start off globe-trotting on our interactive world map [New Window] and when you have the time, you can:
    • Explore local, mainland, and international sites
    • View upcoming livestream concerts
    • Enter the Hogwarts Digital Escape Room
  • Bored in the house [New Window]? We have a few tips to battle boredom!

  • Stream popular movies from Leeward subscribed databases, such as Kanopy and Swank [New Window]!
