Rowling  famously (and wisely) advised: When in doubt go to the library. But what does one do when library buildings are closed? The Library's director of Youth & Family Engagement, Crystal Faris, suggests going to the digital library and taking advantage of all the youth-friendly online services we have to offer.

A resource implemented earlier this year by the  Library on its computers is temporarily available for you to use at home for free. NewsGuard can help sift through the news of today and sort fact from fiction – from reports about the upcoming election to updates about the novel coronavirus. The browser extension provides credibility ratings and “Nutrition Label” reviews of thousands of news and information websites, indicating which sources are generally trustworthy, and which have been found to spread misinformation.  NewsGuard has temporarily removed its paywall until July 1, meaning anyone can add the service at home to see the most up to date, accurate news possible related to COVID-19.
