Many families were bummed out when they found out that libraries across the country were closing.  But do you know about all the things you can do online with your library card?

Yes, of course you can download books and music with your card, but there's so much more to do!

“We’ve got story time and bedtime stories. We’ve got virtual Lego clubs, cooking classes, virtual tours of the exhibits that we’ve had for our rare and unique collections,” - Mary Jean Jakubowski, Director of Buffalo and Erie County Public Library System.

WIVB has put together this incredible list to help you find activities for you and your family while we are all home:
