Get Ready for School with Your Library Card!

The stores are stocking their shelves with bright boxes of crayons and pristine backpacks. You know what that means - back-to-school season has begun! Whether you are preparing for your very first day of kindergarten, your last year of high school, or year fifteen as an educator, your library card is an essential school supply. With it, you can check out great books for your class or your family to help feel excited about school.  You can take advantage of free online tutoring with your library card. And if you learn at home, whether through homeschooling or just the love of extra knowledge, there are great books and resources to help you explore your academic passions. 

Back to School Reads for Kids from Preschool to Middle School

Some kids are naturally excited about each new school year; others need a little encouragement. Whether you're looking for a laugh-out-loud picture book about having a sandwich for a teacher, or a tug-on-your-heartstrings middle grade novel about finding ways to make a new kid feel truly accepted, these great books will make returning to school feel a little brighter.
