Quarantine Corner

While classes are online and socializing is limited, here are some things to break the boredom.

Welcome to the Library's Quarantine Corner

We are experiencing something we've never seen before. While you are stuck at home 24/7, it can feel like an endless cycle. You don't know what day it is. You're stressed. Maybe even anxious.

But, on top of all that, you are bored!

So we created this guide to offer some fun things to do when you aren't working while also keeping you informed about how to deal with COVID-19.


We understand that this time period is serious and stressful. We did not create this page to make light of the situation at hand, but to help people de-stress with some entertainment while stuck in quarantine. 

You can find COVID-19 Resources on the "COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Resources" LibGuide here.


How to Make a Mask:

  1. Million Mask Challenge: Several online groups have formed to sew and donate PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) in the form of surgical masks and N95 mask covers to help medical personnel and first responders make their N95 masks last as long as possible. The group, Million Mask Challenge, is focusing on facilities in the MD, VA and DC area. They have a huge demand and could use as many mask covers as possible. Please help if you can!
  2. Quick Non-sewing Mask for Self: Easy video on how to make simple mask for yourself to go do essential errands.

  3. How to Make an Effective Face Mask at Home: Tells you what materials to use and gives detailed instructions on how to make a mask at home.
