During the fall, student patrons had the chance to win new MPG players. Using our Library Services Brochure, participants reviewed free online database available on our library website. They completed “Name Three Databases That You Like To Use and Describe Why”. Winning tickets were drawn.

Christian won in the Elementary School Division. He uses the “Science Resource Center to find experiments to do, Searchasaurus to find information about sharks & reptiles & aliens, and Novelist K-8 to find books to read that are popular about monsters.”

Emily won in the Middle School Division. She says “Three databases I like are the Encyclopedia of Crime and Justice, Facts on File, and Novelist K-8. The encyclopedia is helpful because I want a career in criminal justice. The Facts on File helps me look up research, and the Novelist K-8 helps me look for new books to read.”

Noel won in the High School Division. “Auto Repair because it’s a 24/7 live online service, Book Index with Reviews because it helps me find the perfect book, and Science Resource Center because it helps me with science projects for school.”



Noel, Emily, and Christian show off their new MP3 players. Director John Taube recently presented the players to the winning entries.
