Library at nightNow that school has started, so have the research paper assignments. The library has access to online tools that can help you with your research. These online resources are free to use  but they do require you to log-in with your library card. If you don’t have a library card, now is a good time to get one, you know, since September is library card sign-up month. A library card really should be added to the school supply lists.
