For Those Who Love To Read

I am sure that most of my readers who love to read are already aware of the “Digital Library Of America” but just in case you are not among this group, I am writing this short post in the hopes it will help open some doors for you to an expanded world of literary works that are freely and completely available on the Internet for your reading pleasure.


Some of the best materials from America’s archives, museums and libraries are made available in digital form through this amazing website and I make use of it myself often. Great for students, teachers, scholars, academics and the public in general. I know you are going to thank me for this one!

I don’t care whether your interests lie in “History and Culture,” “Geneaology, “Lifelong Learning” or basic scholarly research, you will discover a vast richness of information and materials available instantly and freely to you through this marvelous online resource.

You can browse this vast library by topic if you choose and some of the entertaining, informative and educational topics you can explore include but are not limited to:

(1)  The American Civil War
(2)  Aviation
(3)  Baseball
(4)  Civil Rights
(5)  Immigration
(6)  Photography
(7)  Women In Science

You can go ahead and view some of their exhibitions — ( HERE )

Try to imagine the wonders that are awaiting the reading aficionados of this world through the miracle of digitalization and the internet:

“DPLA connects people to the riches held within America’s libraries, archives, museums, and other cultural heritage institutions. All of the materials found through DPLA—photographs, books, maps, news footage, oral histories, personal letters, museum objects, artwork, government documents, and so much more—are free and immediately available in digital format. “

You may thank me tomorrow if you desire.
