Work Smarter, Faster On School Projects
Your library card makes it easy to score big on school projects and papers. With free access to databases, research tools, and nonfiction materials, it’s easier than ever to get work done.
Biographies — for both adults and children — are available, as are books on specific topics like robotics, math, and science.
Consult our practice test books for the SAT, ACT, and GED. The newest editions may require a $20 deposit, reimbursed when the book is returned in good condition.
Improve your vocabulary, grammar, and understanding of another country’s language and culture with nonfiction materials. Books explaining rules of grammar and how to learn foreign languages are located in the adult nonfiction section under 400.
Audiobooks teaching French, German, Italian and Spanish are part of the adult collection. Those learning Spanish may enjoy reading children’s books written in Español, found in the children’s department.
Our wide collection of Accelerated Reader books comes clearly marked with reading level and points. We are always willing to help even the most discerning reader find a book to enjoy.
