Free library resource during Coronavirus lockdown

For any one who hasn't seen it yet, the Internet Archive loans digitised books to the world. Their digital library is free to read for anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in the world. They want to be very clear about the duration of this emergency library. It is meant to meet a specific, extraordinary need - universities, schools and libraries around the world are closed and people cannot access the physical materials within. Whilst they serve the world, they operate in the United States, and so we are taking the extraordinary measure to suspend waiting lists on their lending collection throughout the duration of the US national emergency to meet the educational and inspirational needs of a global community of readers and learners. The library will have suspended waiting lists until 30th June 2020, or the end of the US national emergency, whichever is later. After that, waiting lists will be dramatically reduced to their normal capacity. Its worth taking a look whether you require an educational resource for your pupils, something to help you as a parent with home schooling your children, or just for something different to read.
