Your child's school report is due, the teacher says you can't use Google, and the library's closed. What to do? Try our databases! These are collections of information, reprinted from books and magazines, available for free with your library card and PIN.
National Geographic Kids is full of articles that appeared in the National Geographic Kids magazine, easy to search by subject. Lots of books published by National Geographic are available, too. Search a book's contents or browse through, page by page.
Kids InfoBits gives you even more articles from a wider selection of magazines, chosen to be the right reading level for elementary-school readers. Searchasaurus offers additional magazine articles for younger grades.
To access all these databases, start at chandlerlibrary.org and hover your mouse over the purple RESEARCH tab. Then click Databases A-Z, and scroll down to choose Kids InfoBits, National Geographic Kids, Searchasaurus - and more! You’ll need your library card and PIN if you’re signing in from home. Then you can browse popular topics from the main page or use the search bar at the top to search for your own topic. Also - look for the citation information that goes with each book or article. It will tell you how to include the resource in a Works Cited page, just like a regular book or magazine.
