Back to School Guide
The summer is winding down, and students and teachers are headed back into the classroom. The days of sittin’ poolside are traded for homework and all-nighters. When I think about school, I think of all the time spent in the library. (Most likely cramming for an exam that was the following morning. I don’t recommend this approach to education.)
This got me thinking, how many of us truly utilize our public libraries? I know I’m the only 20-something among my friend group who does. But I don’t necessarily think people my age, or any age, understand what resources most public libraries offer. So, for back to school, I’m gifting you with my guide to public libraries!
In Part One, you’ll find a guide to digital libraries along with digital resources for students and teachers. Part two will cover library events for both children and adults.
Now before you write me off with a yawn, listen up. You’re paying for your local library. Shocker, I know. But if you take the time to look into what your public library has to offer, I guarantee you’ll find at least one resource that will either A) save you money or B) appeal to an interest you already have, or have wanted to explore. Eh hem, I’ll step off my soap box now.
Keep in mind the title of this series, this is a guide. Each and every public library is different. Yours may not offer any of the resources I post in this series. But either way, my goal will be accomplished; you’ll look into those resources. Won’t you?
Watch for parts one and two next week! Until then, do you have any questions about utilizing your library? Post them in the comments below and I’ll answer in next week’s posts.
