writerOne thing you can always count on with the arrival of a new school year is homework!  And another thing you can count on is the library being here to help you.  No, we won't do your homework for you, but we will try to help you find the information and resources you need to get your homework done.

Did you know you can get live Homework Help through the library's website?  You can talk with a live tutor via the internet everyday between 4:00 - 11:00 p.m.  Trained tutors are available to help 4th - 12th grade students with math, science, social studies, and English.  All you need to get started is your library card and PIN.  Click here to learn more and get connected.

The library also offers a number of free electronic resources that can be accessed both at home and at the library.  Again, all you need is your library card and PIN.  These resources include:

As you can see, your library card is a free ticket to a wealth of information.  If you don't know your PIN number, call or come into the library with your library card number and we can look it up for you.  Have a great school year, and don't forget that your library card is one of your most valuable school supplies!
