ANYTIME READING

We've got all the usual things that libraries have: 

We've also got:

  • programs just for you
  • book recommendations  
  • free online tutoring from HelpNow
  • an eLibrary of books, audiobooks, movies, and music for your device
  • Still paying for music? Why?!

    Freegal and hoopla allow you to stream and download good tunes that are free and legal. All you need is your library card. These collections are always growing so make them your first stop when you're looking for a new artist, track, or album. Then start thinking about what you can do with all that money you'll save.

    Got a question? Ask us!

    Looking for homework help?

    Get live online tutoring: Tap into HelpNow from Brainfuse for free homework help, skills-building, and writing assistance from certified tutors, daily 2-11 p.m., English or Spanish. Totally free just because you have a library card.

    For reliable and easy-to-access information, check out our databases

    Or visit the library; we're happy to help. You can also send us a message with your question in real time via webchat; look for the "Chat with a Librarian" option at the bottom right of your screen during library hours.

    Join us at Teen Zone events for fun and food.

    Volunteer

    Become a Teen Tech Tutor
    Are you good with technology? Can you explain new technology to others? Then we've got a good gig for you.

    In this ongoing program, teens help adult patrons at the library figure out their tech problems with email, attachments, social media, and the library's e-collections.

    Sessions are held every Saturday morning at Cook Park Library and Saturday afternoons at Aspen Drive Library. We keep a roster of volunteers so it's not an every-week commitment unless you want it to be.
