It’s That Time of year, dear readers, when the back-to-school-scramble begins. The rush to finish summer reading or assignments, find school supplies, and mentally prepare for the coming school year. For some, it’s exciting–and rightfully so! But it can also be a very stressful time of year–which is also completely valid. Trying to anticipate all the coming school year might have in store isn’t easy.
Fortunately, as in so many other matters, the Library is here to help.
We’ve recently added Tutor.com to our collection of digital resources.

The Tutor.com Learning Suite also includes practice quizzes, skills drills, video lessons and The Princeton Review Essentials test preparation. Tutors are available Monday-Friday 2-10 pm and Saturday & Sunday 9 am – 10 pm.
