It’s Back to School Time!

schoolpicIf you have kids, by now they’ve probably started their school year. (Except, maybe, if your teachers are on strike, but that’s a whole other story!) I just want to take this moment to remind you that the Library is here for all of your school supplemental needs. If your child needs some extra help in a language, we have video, audio and print materials to help. If they need to do a report on a president, we have videos and books about everyone from Washington to Obama. If you want to know what you could be doing to encourage homework completion, we have books and online tutors for that. If you and your kids need a break, you need to know that the Library has movies and fiction and programs galore! Here is just a sample of what’s waiting for you and your school-age children at the library…
