Online Resources or eReader Training
Would you like your students to know about all of the fantastic information that can be found in places other than the internet? Our school liaisons offer training for students of all ages on the Library’s information rich online resources.

Are your students owners of eReaders but don’t know how to use them? One of our eReader experts will bring the devices to your classroom and demonstrate how it is done.
