Back to School

Posted August 7th, 2019 in Uncategorized

It’s Back to School Time

It’s time to put away the toys of summer and return to the joys of learning.

As kids and teens go back to school, we have many tools to help with classwork – whether at home or at school.

You don’t even have to leave home for many of them.

You can use our website to access databases to help with research papers, class projects and homework. Explora Primary, Kids InfoBits and Salem Press provide access to information from reputable sources. No more wondering if that information you found on the Internet is accurate or not. Just use the sources that these databases provide.

Explora Primary and Explora Public Libraries provide age-appropriate articles, essays and primary source materials for research papers, projects and homework.

Kids InfoBits is an easy-to-use resource featuring age-appropriate, reliable, curriculum-related content covering a range of topics including animals, literature, science, technology, etc.

If you’re studying a language and need a little practice, or just want to learn one on your own, check out Rocket Languages.

Homeschooled kids and their parents can also attend our STEM/STEAM workshops at the main library and branch libraries. During these fun classes, we’ll make amazing creations and learn more about science, technology, electronics, arts and math. Check out our calendar for specific dates.

While kids are in the program creating, the parents or caretakers can learn more about the resources we have to supplement their homeschool materials.

And then there is the most obvious way we can help – visit the library and check out our books and videos. Not only are they helpful for education, but they can provide a wonderful break.
