Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Season of change at the libraries
September is a transition month for the Tahoe region. Kids go back to school, the roads are quiet, the nights lengthen and the colors begin to change.
The region’s libraries shift from summer reading to supporting student’s school needs. Check out all the great tools and resources we offer, including “Brainfuse,” which offers Live Tutoring, homework help and skill building.
Tutors are available Monday through Sunday from 1-10 p.m. Just log in with your Library card number.
Explora offers full-length magazine articles and encyclopedias. Mango Online languages helps you learn a new language.
We all have online newspapers, magazines and much more to help students with their studies.
Stop by your local library branch, go online, or come to the “Get to Know the Library Website” class at Kings Beach Library on the first Thursday of each month. We are here to help!
