Library From Home

You might be working from home, but did you know you can Library From Home too?  As we all hunker down to help keep our communities safe, check out some of the resources compiled here by the McClelland Library. We have something for everyone on this page, including special benefits for our members and fun things to do for our non-member patrons as well. Some resources are educational, and some resources are just fun, but everything on this page can be enjoyed at home!

While our typical collection scope provides access to Irish focused materials, interesting times call for increased access.  Below you will find content related to Ireland, and content not related to Ireland at all. Regardless of topic, we’re sure that all the great Irish authors would encourage you to read!
