Lib Loop: Sad to see you go

Lib Loop

Alas, summer is winding down. It's noticeable in the yellowing grasses and shortening days, but it is truly palpable with the deluge of back to school advertising by the media and stores.

Our local school district Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD) officially begins on Aug. 31. This is an excellent time to make sure your library card is in good order so you can utilize our myriad of free resources.

We offer online tutoring, homework help, and research aid. We have a reference database to help with report writing. We have books, computers, and Mango languages. Stop by your local library, and utilize our wealth of materials to help you or your child succeed.
