Databases: Homework Help

Clipart of computer and books Clipart: © 2015 Vital Imagery Ltd.Now that school is back into swing, homework is not far behind. Don’t forget about the wonderful resources in the databases of Harris County Public Library available from your home computer or tablet. Databases provide full text magazine articles, literary criticism, encyclopedias, biographical information, and much more. There is even a section of databases entitled Homework for students at the high school level, and another section entitled (For) Kids for middle and elementary school students.

So…when you or your child remembers a project at the last minute, remember the online resources available 24/7 through Harris County Public Library.

Please call 281-471-4022 for more information.

We wish students, teachers, and parents an enriching, happy school year!
