It may be cold out, but school is clearly heating up! Are you working on your science fair project? Researching a famous individual? We’re here to help! Of course, we have books (beat out the competition and besure to place a hold) but also consider using our online databases. All you need is your library card to access reliable resources. Need help? Ask a friendly librarian at the desk or call 508-799-1671.
For your scientific needs, we recommend Science Online, which has a section dedicated to Science Experiments. Browse this database for project ideas. They’re organized by area, from Biology to Weather and Climate, and each suggestion includes the procedure, materials, and background information.
Try Biography in Context to get the facts about historical figures, athletes, and celebrities -- the famous and the infamous. Find articles, videos, and photographs from encyclopedias, journals, and other excellent sources.
We want you to take full advantage of our online resources, but we’d also love to see you in the children’s room! We’ve had a blast in January, with storytimes, story-acting, legos, videogames, valentine-making, and more. In February we’ll be celebrating the Chinese New Year, watching the Winter Olympics, learning to draw manga, playing board games, and staying warm. Keep an eye on the calendar and on Facebook for up-to-date information. Also, come by and meet our new Youth Services Coordinator, Chantell McDowell! She will be joining us in early February. Hailing from North Carolina, she’ll need a warm welcome! We hope to see you soon!
