We're Answering Your Questions!

Linc Back to School.jpgSchool has been back in session for a couple of weeks. Your student needs access to resources that will help him excel in the classroom this year. So does your student have a Capital Area District Libraries card?  

I can hear your responses to my question, and I’m ready with some answers!

“We can’t get to the library during open hours.” 

You don’t need to come to a branch to use many of our services. With a CADL card students can access many free online databases, from any place that has internet access. An “A to Z” list of these resources is available at cadl.org/learn, or click on Homework Help for a list of age appropriate databases. For example, we have Britannica School and World Book for Kids for younger students. Older students will find InfoTrac student, a database with full text magazines, newspapers, and reference books. Linkedin Learning (formerly Lynda.com) offers test taking help, while Pronunciator offers language learning.

“We live outside Ingham County.”

CADL still offers a free card for your student! Our Youth One card is for anyone under 18, no matter where they live. It provides access to filtered public computers in the library, and can be used to check out one item at a time. But it also offers our full menu of digital services, including all those listed above and many more.

So one more question for you: What are you waiting for? Come in today and sign up your student for a CADL card!
