Be a Library Champ!
Are you a Library Champ? How often do you use your Library card at the Library or from home? You can search for jobs, read eBooks, guide your child or grandchild to get help with homework, learn a new language, get home improvement advice, and more.
Help your student use their library cards from home to access important educational resources, like online homework help, Learning Express practice tests, Social Studies Fact Cards, Mango Languages and other reference databases. Most of these are free. See Online Databases for Student Access:
“Our library provides all types of students with the tools they need to succeed,” says Library Director, Mary McCasland. “We provide students with exciting and engaging programs that make learning fun and resources that they can access from the library or from home – all with a free library card. It is for these reasons that a library card is the most important school supply of all.” Studies have shown that kids who use the library do better in school and also are more apt to use the library as a source for lifelong learning and pleasure.
