Adult Online Resources

Greetings to our Patrons from the Adult Librarians @ the Mamaroneck Public Library,
Reference Staff at Mamaroneck Library believes that keeping our Mamaroneck Community members healthy and safe is our highest priority! We also believe that keeping people active and engaged is very much a part of what libraries do best. We have compiled a list of free virtual learning tools, activity sites, and online resources for all to enjoy. Have fun!

National Geographic’s expertise in factual, science-based global storytelling, and our authentic, on-the-ground photojournalism and reporting, is highlighted in our coverage of COVID-19. Today, we are providing that content without charge. Through this public service, you’ll find everything from authoritative pieces about the origins of this zoonotic disease, which spread from animals to humans, to practical ways for families and children to cope with the daily challenges we are all facing because of it. You can view all these stories in a designated digital hub.

The speed with which the coronavirus pandemic has entered our lives is unnerving. Despite that, across National Geographic’s platforms — whether print, digital, social, audio, or television—our staff and contributors are working hard to provide an accurate framework that can help us understand the issues, showcase documentary photography about what is happening, and offer credible, actionable information that empowers our readers to make informed choices about how to protect themselves and their loved ones.
