  • 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 for information on what they’re doing in your community.
