Project Help

Do you have a project?  We can help !
Come to your public library and talk to our friendly staff. We will help you find just the right book.

Or, use our Virtual Collection from home to find information. Try PebbleGO if you are in grade K to grade 3. It has great information about EARTH, SPACE and ANIMALS. There are photos and film and sound clips - hear a lion's roar, watch a volcano erupt!

Or try one of the other great databases listed below. The information in our databases is reliable, written by experts, safe and cannot be found using Google.
