Wednesday Web Wanderings #6
I'm so glad you joined for another installment of Wednesday Web Wanderings - hope you find something to enjoy in this random collection of links!
Bookish #PostcardsOfKindness is a great program sending postcards to people in nursing homes. This short article explains its value but also how it might be adapted to include a wider range of people who find themselves isolated during the Covid stay-at-home directives. Who can you send a postcard to?
I'm wondering. While you're practicing social distancing and shelter-at-home, are you using your library's digital resources? Even though you may prefer a hard copy book in your hands, if you're desperate for something new to read, their digital collections may offer some relief. You don't HAVE to have an e-reader - using Overdrive/Libby you can read on your computer or phone OR you can check out audio books as well (I'm currently listening to Cinder on a library audio book!).
Seattle has had a touch of spring lately (I'm sure it will turn rainy again soon....it is April after all). For places in the country/world where you need a reminder that spring is near and that we'll be able to get outside soon, here's five virtual garden tours.
I particularly like this link. Conde Nast Traveler has pulled together 101 Travel-Inspired Things To Do while stuck at home. There are some really fabulous links in this article. As an avid traveler, I love this!

I discovered another industry that's going through a big surge in business due to Covid-19. Jigsaw puzzles! Here's an interesting article about how puzzles are made (fascinating!), complete with a couple of celeb cameos.
To close for today, here's a musical You Tube to an acapella version of You Raise Me Up by Peter Hollens. I've always enjoyed Hollens' voice and clean vocals - hope this brings a smile today.
Stay home, Stay safe.
