    Back to School – Don’t Forget Your Library!

    With summer drawing to a close, everyone is beginning to anticipate the start of a new school year. Amidst all the planning – supplies, new clothes, arranging carpools – don’t forget to make good use of the library in your community.

    How can my library help?

    • Children and teens -- especially incoming kindergarteners or anyone attending a new school for the first time – can find stories to help them prepare emotionally for what’s coming.
    • Students can investigate homework resources. Many libraries offer homework assistance after school.
    • Adults can locate information about area colleges. Reference librarians can help locate obscure government student loan forms.
    • Students can find a good study guide for the ACT, SAT, GED, GRE, LSAT or MCAT.

    Contact your local library and children’s or young adults' librarian for information on what they’re doing in your community.
