School’s starting again, and that means homework. Where can you get help? Try your library!
Our Downtown Chandler Library’s Learning Lab offers homework help to students through high school. Trained volunteers can assist with basic homework assignments, as well as GED preparation, computer skills for adults, and using all the research resources that the library has to offer. Visit our Learning Lab and homework help center on the first floor of the Downtown Chandler Library (next to the computer lab near the information desk):
- Mondays 4-6pm
- Tuesdays 3-5pm
- Wednesdays 2-6pm
- Thursdays 3-5pm
Need research materials from home? If your teacher tells you that you need articles, or you can only use two websites, you can still find what you need at your library, even from home. Visit chandlerlibrary.org, click Research & Learning, and check out our A-Z Databases page, where you’ll find a world of resources reprinted from books, magazines, and newspapers - so they’re just like using those books, magazines, and newspapers. If you found these articles in a Google search, you’d probably have to pay for them, but as a library card holder we’ve already paid for you! Use your card number and PIN to log in from home, and try these popular databases:
- Academic OneFile: Articles from scholarly journals, when your teacher says you need academic sources.
- Biography in Context: For those biography reports, articles from journals and encyclopedias.
Don’t forget to check our bookshelves when you’re in the library - you’ll find books to help with homework and study skills. Look at the nonfiction shelves around 371 to 373, or check out these suggestions:
