HOMEWORK RESCUE

Have you ever gotten home without your school password to get on the databases at school for your homework? This happened to one of the students I know. HCPL came to the rescue because she was able to log on with her library card to use the World Book Student edition from our website www.hcpl.net. That's what I call "homework rescue!"
