RESOURCES  FOR SOME STRANGE TIMES

As we continue with restrictions which may last many months, here are some of our ideas about on-line  resources for writers and readers. This page is very much a work in progress.

However the good news is that Murrindindi Shire

libraries, including the mobile library, have resumed operating.

It's at times like this ... that I really wish I'd listened to what my mother told me when I was young.

Why, what did she tell you?

I don't know. I didn't listen.

From Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy

Electronic books

The Murrindindi library services gives access to several thousand electronic books

Project Gutenberg gives free access to hundreds of thousands of out-of-copyright books. You may know of Daniel Defoe from Robinson Crusoe or Moll Flanders, but early in 2020, his Journal of the Plague Year was getting about 2000 downloads a day. and at almost 5000 downloads a month early 2021.
