The St. Tammany Parish Library Offers Educational Support and Opportunities
As the 2022-23 school year begins, the St. Tammany Parish Library (STPL) reminds all students, from kindergarten through college, of the online and in-person resources available to augment their learning. Whether the need is for additional practice for a class or an exam, or a hands-on discussion on how to research specific topic, the library is ready.
For online help, start by getting a library card. To do that, just visit one of the 12 branch library branches; the cards are free for St. Tammany residents. Next, explore the educational resources of the STPL Online Library at sttammanylibrary.org. Educational databases include World Book Wizard, a personalized way to help students master science and social studies skills; Gale In Context Elementary, age-appropriate digital content for developing comprehension and research skills; and Homework Louisiana, which offers a live online tutor.
Learn more about how to use these and other databases at the link bit.ly/STPLNicheAcademy2022. Any time the library is open, educational resources are available in-person.
