Materials for Taking Exams

The library can help with study materials if you have an exam you need to take, such as the SAT, GED, CLEP, TeXES, CDL, etc. In addition to books, we have a database called Learning Express Library that has practice tests available and can be used from home. To sign up, go to our home page, click on Databases, then Education & Libraries, then Learning Express Library. If you are using your home computer to access the database, you will be prompted for your library card number. Register as a New User and then you can log back in as a Returning User at any time to take the practice tests. There are many types of practice tests to choose from and the database is free!

LA PORTE FILM COMMITTEE POSTS SRP VIDEO

If you want to see an example of the talent of our La Porte Film Committee, take a look at their Summer Reading Video which is posted on this youtube link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY6V1Y6wh0Q . For the past 6 years a small group of dedicated young people have assisted our children's librarians with the creation and filming of a short video to promote the Summer Reading Program. Each of the 26 branches receive a copy to use as the librarians make school visits. Our Friends of La Porte Library have graciously provided the funding for cameras, sound equipment and costuming. We at La Porte Community Library are very proud of our talented children and librarians.
