Tools to Succeed at Your Library! by Vanesa Gomez

Posted to Campbell Unclassified on July 29, 2022 at 3:07 PM by Genesis Gaule

The library is a great place to check out your favorite books, new movies, and Nintendo Switch games. What some people might not know is that the library can also help students achieve their goals with information and resources. No matter what your school level is (or how many years you’ve been out of it), we can help!

For new readers, our Easy Reader collection is color coded to help you find the level of reading that is both approachable and challenging for your child. The levels of easy reader books from lowest to highest are: blue, yellow, and green.

For older students who may need to research topics for class projects, book reports, and essays, we have a wide variety of books in our Easy Nonfiction and Adult Nonfiction sections. You can find a section of books on a certain topic by using our catalog or asking a librarian for help. 

If you are interested in researching a topic and need credible or peer reviewed sources, the eLibraryMN (or ELM) has a database of e-books and scientific journals available.

If we don’t carry a book you are looking for, ask a librarian about submitting a Interlibrary Loan (ILL) request. There is a $3.50 fee to help cover the cost of shipping.

The library also offers quiet study rooms that students can reserve for free. These can be used for studying, test taking, or even to attend a job interview--All the student needs is a library card to reserve a room! If your course requires in-person test proctoring, ask the front desk to set up your test day and time for a $15 fee.

Need to record? Ask about using the study room equipped with sound proofing. 

Volunteering is also a common requirement for college graduation. Tutoring at the library is a great way to help students of all ages and backgrounds who may need extra homework or reading help. Reach out to Robyn Benda at (218)773-9121 ext 221 or rbenda@egflibrary.org if you are interested in volunteering!
