Reference and Research

Life for a teenager can be very demanding: worrying about grades, worrying about friends, working, volunteering, doing school projects, sports, extracurricular activities...

The last thing we want you to worry about is how to get the information you need when you need it. Of course you can call the library... if you remember the assignment during business hours, but what about the nights you don't get home til 10 pm and still have to write a review about a current event? Or Sunday afternoon after a busy week of school, work, and friends when you remember you have to wrote a report?

We are still here for you. Just visit the main library website at Look at the menu on the left side of the page and find <Reference & Research>. Scroll the cursor over it and select <Databases At Home>. You know have access to:
