Back To School with the Library
Published on Monday, September 16, 2013 - 9:23am
School’s back, and with it comes the joys of everybody’s favorite after-school responsibility – homework!
Never fear, kids: not only is the library a great place to chill out, visit with friends and even play, it’s got loads of ways to make homework and special projects go much, much more smoothly.
Take a look at our website. At the top of this page under the “Teen” and “Kids” tabs, you can click on “Homework Help.” The first thing you’ll notice is online tutors from Tutor.com, who are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year!
Another wonderful part of our website is all the databases. These are also under the “Teens” and “Kids” tabs. Databases are jam-packed full of great information you can use for history projects, geography reports, biographies … you name it.
Start by exploring FreedomFlix, World Book Encyclopedia for Kids, or any ones that sounds good to you. Once you get going, you might want to try them all!
Plus, with databases you can be sure that the info you get is accurate and up-to-date – something you can’t always be sure of just asking around or searching through Google (which can be like the internet version of asking around).
Of course, any of our librarians are happy to help, too.
Stop by the Children’s Room or Teen Space to get started, or call us at 202-727-1248 for children, or 202-727-5535 for teens.
