We can help you find the tools and resources to succeed this school year. Besides offering print and digital materials like study guides and biographies for your academic research projects, we also have activities (both online and in-person), online resources and periodicals. Our activities range from story times, opportunities to earn community service hours, back to school basics and more. When it’s time to start writing papers or finding a tutor, you can depend on our online resources. From Gale Literary Sources to Tutor.com and the World Almanac for Kids®, we’ve got you covered!

STEM kits encourage children to develop an interest and skills in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. These kits offer families the chance to continue hands-on exploration of STEM topics at home. They include books, DVDs, games and other interactive materials to explore basic concepts in STEM, and they are free to check out with your Palm Beach County Library System card!
