WHEN IN DOUBT, GO TO THE LIBRARY
Students of all ages must not forget their most important school supply this year...a library card! 
Your library card will give you access to live tutors in math, science, reading/writing, social studies, PSAT/SAT, ACT, AP and state standardized tests. A 24-hour online writing lab and homework question center are also available. 
Signing up for a card is easy - visit the library with your picture ID and proof of residency. We’ll mail you your card within the week. If you cannot make it to the library, please email CRS@communitylibrary.org and a staff member will be in touch.

STAFF PICKS from the Digital Services Department
Charlotte's Web (2006)

A children's movie classic based on E.B. White's book by the same name. An all-star cast including tons of familiar names like Dakota Fanning, Julia Roberts, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, and more brings plenty of talent to this tale of friendship between a tiny spider and a small pig. This is a feel good comedy for the whole family.
