Hey! Got Homework?
The following pages offer complete, trustworthy information to help you do your homework.
The Newton Free Library has a lot to offer......
- library’s databases
- reliable websites
- book recommendations
Databases are available inside the library or at home.
- To access them at home all you need is your library card. To obtain a library card please visit the library.
Hint: Save the stuff you find on these databases to read later.
Either: Copy and paste the text into a Word document and save it in Rich
Text Format (.rtf) to a flash drive. Rich Text Format files can be read by
any word processor, so you don’t need Word to read them.
