BURLINGTON, MA — The Burlington Public Library remains closed to the public, but the library announced additional online resources Wednesday. The new "stay-at-home library" uses OverDrive and Hoopla to make library materials including ebooks, audiobooks, movies, magazines, music and graphic novels available at home. The library also provides access to the Boston Globe, Ancestry.com, Rocket Languages and more online.

The library has also put up an online form to register for a library card, for residents who haven't already. Both the full list of offerings and the new online library card form are available here.

Finally, the library began hosting "virtual storytimes" Tuesday via Facebook Live. They will take place Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m., weekly.

More information from the library is available here.
