Fans of Japanese animation age 11 through adults are invited to the Albany Public Library’s Anime Club meeting from 4:30 to 5:30 on the third Thursday of each month at the Main Library. Members meet to play Yu-Gi-Oh and other games, share books, practice drawing in the Japanese style, and meet others with similar interests. Kids younger than age 11 may attend if accompanied by a parent.
Student Resources in Context – Selection of reference, thousands of full-text periodicals and newspapers, primary documents, creative works, and multimedia, including hours of video and audio clips and podcasts. Type your topic in the search box above to give it a test drive.
Use the AR website from Renaissance Learning to find the levels and points of your favorite titles. Or use the advanced search feature to browse titles at your interest and reading level, then search the library catalog to see if we have the title.
Lexile® measures, useful for Common Core curricula, can provide educators with actionable information about a student’s reading ability. Lexile measures enable educators to match the student with books, articles and other reading resources that will provide the right level of challenge for that student’s ability and goals.
OSLIS-Oregon School Library Information System provides access to awesome research tools, help with MLA citations, and test prep material.
