Website of the Week: Thesaurus.com

Recently, students have been wandering in the Library asking for synonyms to words on their English vocabulary sheets.  We have thesaurus in the library that I direct them to but if you are at home, this is a great website to look up words.  In addition, there is other great things on this site: crossword puzzles, word of the day and a reference section.  Don’t have access to a computer? You can download their app from your phone’s app store.

Which book is next in the series?

A very common question I get is: “Miss, which is the next book in this series?”  There is a great website that has been created by Mid Continent Public Library that allows you to search for books in a series.  You can search by Title, Author, Series title or by subject.  It is well maintained and very easy to use.
