It’s that time…pencils, paper, notebooks, and backpacks…back to school time. Here are some resources to help you get your child ready to learn this school year.
If you homeschool, be sure to check out our resources for home educators!
- Find high-quality information for school projects 24-7 from your home with your library card! Use our databases such as Biography in Context, LitFinder, Science in Context and INSPIRE to find magazine articles, encyclopedia articles, pictures, videos and more for use in your homework.
- Did you know the library has study rooms available on a first-come-first-served basis? You can use them to meet with tutors, work on group projects or just have a quiet place to study.
- We have a list of private tutors available covering a wide range of grade levels and subjects…Ask Us at the front desk to see it! (Please note: BPL maintains this list for the convenience of our patrons. BPL does not support or endorse any of these tutors. They have not been vetted in any way. It is your responsibility to interview and select a suitable tutor.)
- If you’re looking for reading suggestions for your school-agers, check out our recommendations on the Children’s Reading Suggestions blog
- Do you need help finding books at your child’s Lexile level? Ask Us or check out the reading program resources here!
- Want to keep up with what your kids are reading for school but don’t have time? Try an audiobook! Check out books on CD at the library or download e-audiobooks from Overdrive!
