Homework Help is a new service available for children and teens who need help with their projects. From Science Fair to Heritage Fair, from English papers to History projects, the Library has books, magazines and online encyclopedias that can help kids succeed at school. Youth can take advantage of this online service to answer questions and make their project research faster and easier. We can place requests for books, send articles help with the citations and recommend websites - all you need is a library card!
Starting November 14th Homework Help is available:

We're proud to introduce a brand new way to share books - Book Buzz! It's our 2013-2014 guide to great reading for children. If you have ever wondered what your child should read next, Book Buzz will help you find the answer.
We've designed this guide as an e-publication, it is available for download as a pdf or, as an ibook which can be read on an iPad. We highly recommend viewing Book Buzz on the iPad because it will make for a more interactive reading experience. With the iPad version there are image galleries of children's drawings about books, and sound clips of children promoting books available.
Our dream is for every child to enjoy books and reading. We’ve created Book Buzz to help make this wish come true. It is designed to introduce the best of, most interesting new children’s books available through your local public library. Many of the books discussed have been kid-tested through our school and summer programs. Parents, caregivers, and teachers can use this with the children in their lives, to discover the books that can transform a child into a voracious reader!
The Library would like to thank NuStar Energy Ltd, and their charitable partners, for their support of the Building Blocks project which made this, our very first e-publication possible.
