It is that time of year again when many are shopping for back-to-school supplies. While you are shopping for clothes, shoes, pencils, pens, paper, notebooks, and backpacks, don't forget the most important school supply of all: your public library card!
With your library card you have access to a world of information.
From home, you can access our many databases and reserve books so they will be waiting for you when you come to the library.
Our databases are probably our best kept secret. Our databases include Learning Express, where you can take practice test to prepare for the ACT, SAT, and many more, to Freegal Music, where you can download MP3 songs to add to your own collection. The databases also include encyclopedias, dictionaries, full text articles from magazines, newspapers, and journals.
At the library, you can log on to our public access computers, check out books, CDs, DVDs, audio books, books with CDs, and eBooks. Many of the libraries also have computer classes to make your computing experience more productive and fun.
Legal information, biographies, maps and more are available with your library card and a computer.
The best thing of all, your first library card is free. So, while you are doing your back-to-school shopping, stop by your local library to get your most important school supply—your library card.
