Spring break may look a lot different for you and your family this year. With the global COVID-19 or “Coronavirus” pandemic causing delays and cancellations across the nation, it’s hard to remember that plans to head off to Myrtle Beach or the monuments of Washington, D.C. for spring break were once a thing. It seems most families will have a staycation this year. However spring break looks for you this year, take the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library with you! You won’t need to make extra room in your suitcase or on your nightstand for these reads- they’re digital! Using a tablet, phone or computer, you can access these titles and more during your vacation.
