Back to School Resources
Fall is right around the corner, which means one thing: back to school season is in full swing! Whether you’re a teacher’s pet, class clown, instructor or parent, the library has resources to help make this school year a success.
The library has an array of resources available for all school ages. Not only can you check out books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs and digital items, but your library card also gives access to databases to help with your studies. You’re able to freely browse through everything from online encyclopedias to scholarly journals. There are also helpful tips for learning during COVID-19.
If you’re an adult learner returning to school, we also have free adult education databases available to help in achieving your education goals.
The library wants to help make your job less stressful by ensuring that you have a successful school year. Teacher Cards are available to any instructor with proof of employment. You do not have to teach or live in Campbell County to sign up for a Teacher Card. With a Teacher Card, you can request books for projects and lessons throughout the school year. Library staff will work with you to collect books and audiobooks to use in your classroom. Find out more about how to sign up for a Teacher Card or how to schedule a librarian visit to your classroom by visiting our Teacher Resource page.
Parents & Guardians
Don’t worry, the library hasn’t forgotten how the school year can be a stressful time for parents and guardians as well as students. We have some links to helpful websites to help support your family’s work this school year.
The library offers programs designed specifically for homeschoolers to attend. Additionally, our website also contains a list of helpful websites for homeschooling, which contain a variety of tips and useful information.
Computer Access and Study Spaces
Each of our library branches has desktop computers or laptops for you to reserve to work on your school assignments. You can use your library card to gain access to the devices available at any of our branches. Don’t have a library card? No worries! You can stop by any branch today to get a library card or sign up online for a digital patron card to access our online databases and digital collection.
If you need a place to gather classmates for a group project or just need a quiet space to study, there are also study rooms and meeting rooms available to reserve at our branches. You can reserve a room online today or contact any of our four branches directly to reserve a room.
