#HunkerDownAnchorTown - Hunker Down Help from our Anchorage Public Library

Hi, Brian here with some more #907LibraryLove-- and now more than ever, we all need it. It seems like life is changing day by day, and even hour by hour sometimes because of COVID-19. One message that has come through loud and clear, though is this one:

STAY AT HOME. SAVE LIVES.

Our Anchorage Public Library wants to help to #HunkerDownAnchortown, with a variety of online, FREE resources at www.AnchorageLibrary.org. I am happy and honored to share them with you!

Library COVID-19 Updates

When in doubt look to Anchorage Public Library. The mission of Anchorage Public Library is connecting people to education, information, and community and even though our libraries are currently closed to visitors this mission carries on. Our friendly library staff is there for you virtually. Check out the Library's latest response to the Novel Coronavirus in the Library COVID-19 Information Center and be sure to connect with our Library on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Our City Support System

All departments of the Municipality of Anchorage are working hard to keep us informed and connected. Stay up-to-date with the MOA COVID-19 response page. For text messages via NIXLE alert, text ANCHEALTH and ANCHORAGEOEM to 888-777.

Have more questions? Call 2-1-1 from 7am – 8pm, 7 days a week.  Alaska 2-1-1 is ready to answer questions about 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) share information including service changes, closures statewide and in the Municipality of Anchorage or refer callers to additional resources. 

Resources for Kids and Caregivers

When you can can't stand to watch that chilly Disney sequel one more time and you're worried that random YouTuber might not be the best fit for your kiddos check out these resources for kids and care givers chosen just for you by our Anchorage Public Library. 

Read, Watch, Listen, Learn ONLINE!

Time hunkered down means time for learning learn new skills with LinkedIn Learning by Lynda.com offering hundreds of trainings and thousands of hours of instruction presented by reliable industry experts. Choose from a wide range of subjects such as general business software, marketing, design, networking, photography, music and even working remotely.

Anchorage Public Library card holders have FREE ACCESS when you enter through our Library's learning portal  with your card number and PIN. 

Check learning a new language off your list in our Library's language resource center.

AND MY PERSONAL FAVORITE:

Take a listen to new audio books hand picked by librarians. New titles continue to be added so check back often to your digital service of choice. 

You know, I can talk your ear off about audio books on my Libby app... so there's another good thing about social distancing, right?

90-DAY DIGITAL LIBRARY CARD!

Got a library card already? You're all set! Need one? No problem!

During the closure, new users can get a 90-day temporary library card using this link. The temp card allows access to most online resources, and can be exchanged for the verified card once the library is opened. And our library staff can't wait to see you in person when that happens! Until then, our library offers SPECTACULAR CYBER-SUPPORT for you wherever you hunker

Anchorage Public Library - Where connections happen (but for now, online).

Thanks for loggin' where I'm bloggin'! Stay safe!
