Resources to make your stay at home educational and enjoyable

This is a list of on-line resources available to everyone while we are restricted from our normal routines. I believe they are all free. If you know of any please send the links to us through the Library’s messenger on Facebook.

Genealogy

  • Ancestry.com: In light of concerns about COVID-19 and the closure of many libraries around the state, Ancestry and ProQuest are offering temporary at-home access to Ancestry Library Edition for Alabama residents. Please note that at-home access is available on an temporary basis. Until COVID-19 restrictions are lifted. Once they have you can come by the library for free access until the end of this year. From-home access is still available to Alabamians. You must go through an APLS secure page before proceeding to Ancestry Library Edition. You can contact APLS reference staff at reference@apls.state.al.us for the login credentials. Use ALE Access as the subject of your email to receive the credentials promptly. Alternatively, you can message the LPL privately via social media or email to request the login credentials. The password you are give will only work on APLS’ secure site; it is not a password to Ancestry itself.
