Featured Homework Resource

Did you know that you have access to some fantastic databases that can help you with your homework assignments?

Kids Search, for students in K – 8, allows you to search by topic for magazine articles, reference books, photos, flags and more.  Once you begin your search you can filter your results by material type (magazines, newspapers, books & encyclopedias, biographies, photos, maps & flags) and you can also narrow your search by subject and publication.

The Student Research Center is designed for students in grades 6 – 12.  It is a database of thousands of newspaper and magazine articles, country reports, biographies, film and video.  Search by topic, limit according to Lexile reading levels and make use of an online dictionary and encyclopedia.  Sign in and create a folder for yourself where you can store the articles and information you find.

Try out these wonderful resources today by visiting the library's homework help webpage
