Introducing Pub Hub: Stress Relief Resources
During this challenging time, we can all use some time away from the constant worry of pandemics and epidemics. To help with that, BiblioTech is going to begin a new themed reading journey, Pub Hub. Each week, we will post on our website, a curated collection of related material – e-books, e-audio books, both fiction and non-fiction, movies, music and other content designed specifically to address your needs for information and relaxation during the pandemic. We will have the opportunity to connect with one another through our Pub Hub Facebook group and share reactions to the week’s material, thoughts and suggestions about coping with COVID-19. We hope you will participate in what we hope will be a very helpful and unique opportunity for self-care and collaboration.
This is our first Pub Hub collection, and it is focused on Stress Relief. We can still be mindful of practicing good hygiene, but it is important to relieve our stress and anxieties and concentrate on our mental health. From eBooks and audiobooks to music and educational videos, BiblioTech grants you access to a wide variety of content to help you declutter and stay stress-free.
