I'm Boooooored!

As many of us are being recommend to self-isolate, you may be looking for some things to do while stuck at home. (Not me. I'm an introvert with anxiety. Being told to avoid people is a dream come true.) But for everyone else, if you get bored and / or lonely, there are lots of social things you can do online!

Here is a list of some things you can check out, including some feeds for OLLI:

Even if (like me) you want to spend your time reading, I have heard it is possible to run out of books. With a library card you can access library books digitally, without having to leave your house!


With the Overdrive app you can read books on your phone, even if you don’t have an eReader (although I adore my kindle and wouldn’t give it up for anything): https://www.overdrive.com/

So there are some things you can do to reach out to people while being stuck at home. And I’ll probably go ahead and start some discussions on our new news site here: https://olliatwvu.wpcomstaging.com so you can check in there as well.
