Whether summer seemed to fly or was the longest two months
of your life, there’s no denying one thing: School is back in session.
The library has changed,
but it's still a great place to study.
the library, we’ve heard both opinions. In the last few weeks, school-age
patrons have been alternately complaining of boredom and lamenting school’s
imminent return. They’ve longed to return to their friends and wished that
summer could last forever. I don’t know anyone who’s looking forward to
homework (indeed, several students doing school summer reading reports have
come to the library in a panic recently), but maybe those kids are just being
quiet about it.
In any case, no matter how we feel about it, the young people
of our city will be in school from August 27 until the beginning
The library will certainly be a different with school back
in session. The summer party atmosphere will be gone, and in its place, a slightly
more studious feeling will emerge. I’m looking forward to it. As much fun as
the summer is, with Summer Reading, special performers, and actual parties, one
of my favorite moments each year is the first time a child asks for help with
homework after school.
The library is a fantastic place to do school work. We
have books on a variety of topics, and if we don’t have it on site, we can get
it for you. We have newspapers for current events and databases to help you get
accurate information and current information online. Using our computers, you
can access the internet, type and print assignments, make presentations, and
more. And of course, the library has friendly and knowledgeable staff to help
if you get stuck.
We also have fun programs and enjoyable books when you need a
break from school work for a little while. Whether you’re in Kindergarten or graduate
school, we have something to offer this school year. See you at the library!
