Here are some article links on copyright/fair use in virtual storytimes. I’m sharing them with you just in case you haven’t seen them. The State Library is also maintaining an ongoing LIBGUIDE on COVID-19 that can be found here: https://libguides.njstatelib.org/covid2019
I’m also attaching my list of resources for home activities for all ages now since I could just keep adding and adding to it forever at this point. Sorry it’s a bit messy and there are duplicates. I will keep adding to it so if you have anything you want me to include, let me know. I will be adding more public library virtual storytimes based on responses from the survey we sent out to public library directors and more for teens. Thanks to the school librarians who shared on the NJASL discussion list some of their resources.
