MCPL now has a new webpage for homeschool information (Homeschoolers @ the Library is the new name for Discovery Club). The webpage includes information on events and online resources. The Raytown Branch will host two events: Arctic Express November 10 and This Your New Year on December the 8th.
Since school is in session, along comes the dreaded homework. Have no fear, the library is near. If you have Internet access and a valid library card, you have the opportunity to get the help you need in completing difficult assignments.
Will you be taking a test soon? Do you need some help to prepare for that test?
MCPL has several databases that offer a lot of help for your upcoming test. For some live, hands-on help, try our Live Homework Help database. For kindergarten to adult learners, they have online tutors that aid you with math, science, english, social studies, and writing.
A Testimonial for Live Homework Help from Tutor.com
Trying to convince your student that there are options available at your local library to help them with their homework can be an uphill battle. Last night, I had the opportunity to prove to my teenager that the power of a library card from our local library can unlock websites that usually demand payment such as Tutor.com, which he was able to Google but not access. That morning, I was sharing all the benefits of this tool to a non-believer.
My son is a wonderful kid. However, that fact alone does not always translate into good study habits or the kind of grades one would post on the refrigerator under the "World's Greatest Student" magnet. I have spent a lot of time and money on learning centers and private tutors to make sure that he is not the Jethro Bodeen of his school.
When I say homework, I’m guessing your first thought isn’t "Oh, hurray. I would so much rather spend my free time doing school work instead of hanging out with friends, playing games, or watching my favorite TV shows."
Homework was not my favorite thing to do either when I was in school. The good news is that the Library can help you get that homework done and out of the way, so you will have more time to do the things you want to do (No offense to those of you who enjoy homework).
No Housework Day is always celebrated on April 7th.
No Housework Day is a chance to do anything, except housework. Better still, have someone else do the chores for a day. Housework is a daily, seemingly endless and repetitive group of tasks. It often goes unrecognized and worst of all....is taken for granted. But, watch out! If the dishes aren't done, or there are no clean towels, everyone notices!
