Back To School

Back to school time. Pencils, markers, glue sticks, and oh yes......Assignments due tomorrow morning, too late to hit the library. No worries! There's a whole library on our web site at www.pburglib.org Read or print out article or even chapters from reference books, chat online with a reference librarian, find and reserve books in the Library Catalog. Best of all, we have age-appropriate help for students from elementary school through high school. Just click on "When we're closed" ( www.pburglib.org/after_hours.htm ). Type in your library card as your username. These are pricey resources, but available free to library members. You will find:
  • Online Databases includes the Animals Database, Magazine Indexes for Elementary, Middle and High School, Newspaper Archives, and NoveList (try this last one for help with book reports). Your search results may include articles, pamphlets, and book chapters
  • Q and A New Jersey free, live, interactive Internet-librarian assistance 24/7
  • Email a Librarian and have your question answered within 24 hours

And of course, check the Library Catalog for a needed book. "Availability" tells you the date the book is due back if it is checked out; simply type in your library card number to reserve it. If you do not have a PIN when asked, use the last four digits of your phone number. Have a great school year!
