 Online Study and Research Sources for Kids
Databases, Internet help, and advice for readers...at your fingertips


A library database is an online collection of print resources such as magazines, newspapers, journals, encyclopedias, and other reference books. The information has been approved by editors, and is often not available on the Internet. 

Users can search search databases, collect information, and collect the proper citations.

The Library's database collection for children includes research topics, crafts, games, and fun reading materials. Access them by logging in with your library card number and PIN number.


Recommended websites

The Internet is an amazing place full of lively discussion. As you explore the Internet, be aware some websites contain information designed to persuade--or even mislead--visitors. The Library recommends these particularly useful websites as trustworthy sources of information.

Parents need to be aware of what their children are doing on the Internet. Learn more about digital citizenship and online safety at SafeKids.com.
