Your local library can be an amazing online resource. Each library is operated by your county, so resources differ from county to county. In Anne Arundel, the online library provides access to the entire catalog of The Great Courses, which includes cooking lessons, language instruction, philosophy, and a variety of sciences and math courses, including a course in radio astronomy (which is really good!). All you need is your library card number to get access to this material from the isolation of your own home.

- Alternatively, form an educational collective: everyone gets a turn at teaching the group something new.
