We have prepared some suggested online resources – and will be updating so check in frequently – and have added some virtual museum visits. Plus, you can access the library’s own coloring book online for your coloring needs – if you color a page, you can post it on social media with the tag #soplcolor. And check out the online library resources for kids and families.
