Back to school help from the Public Library

It’s the time of year every parent loves and every kid dreads: back to school! Kids all across Los Angeles County are heading back to the classroom over the next few weeks. Fortunately, there are lots of County services available through the Los Angeles County Public Library to get your kids back into the swing of things.

Need some help with a math problem? Students can receive free online homework help with their library card. All they need is their library card, and the internet, and online tutoring is accessible from anywhere!

Need to make a résumé or learn a new language? The Public Library also offers online classes. Learn over 22 foreign languages, how to prepare for a job interview, or how to become an American citizen with hundreds of free online lessons.

Need a book for an upcoming book report or club but can’t find time to make it over to your local library? No worries! You can download e-books, magazines, audiobooks and even music directly from the Public Library website right to your Kindle, Nook or iPad.

All you need to access these helpful services is a library card.

To all the kids heading back to school, I wish you the best of luck in your studies.
