Freeman Teens Read

televisionWe always have a great time discussing our favorite books, movies, TV shows, games and music in our Freeman Teens Read club and today was no exception! Check out what Freeman teens recommend:

Si vous êtes étudiant Français?

Do you want to study French or Mandarin but don't have the time to drive to a college? Look no further than the library's language databases.

Live Mocha offers online courses in languages such as French, German, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Farsi, Japanese, and Urdu. Live Mocha does require free registration to enroll in the courses. This resource also has social features to converse with other students. Note: There are two course options basic (free) and plus (paid).

Testing, testing, 1-2-3!

Are you on the waiting list for the latest GED book?

Have you been unable to renew your check out time on the Real Estate exam book?

If your answer to either one of these questions was "Yes," then hop on the Learning Express Library database on the library's website. On this database, also called LearnATest.com, you can take practice exams based on official tests such as the GED, LSAT, Real Estate, Citizenship, and THEA. These are just a few of the many!

Some material is presented in Spanish as well as English!

Weird Science

beakerJoin us next Wednesday, July 21st @ 2:30 pm in the Teen Zone for a science experiment that’s just plain weird.  Who knows? It might even give you an idea for your science fair project next year.
