For a little help with homework…

Through the library, students have a selection of resources available to supplement their classroom learning. One resource is Brainfuse HelpNow, which offers live tutoring from experts in math, science, reading, writing, and social studies. Another option available is Learning Express Library, which offers over 1,000 online tutorials, practice tests, and e-books to help students of all ages.

For a bit of peace and quiet…

Study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis in each of the library buildings. Simply register at the check-in desk and select an available room. Each room has a whiteboard, table, and outlets for working on class projects or studying for exams.

For those cute first day of school t-shirts…

Use our Silhouette Cameo Cutter! Whether you want to create a t-shirt for the first day of school or a special card for your student’s teacher, the Cameo Cutter can create unique shapes from paper, vinyl and more. Courses to deepen your knowledge of crafts are available at the library in season.

If they are already preparing for the SAT…

Peterson’s Test & Career Prep is a great online resource that offers comprehensive standardized tests online and more. On this platform, you and your student can also learn more about colleges, financial aid, and scholarships.
