Students and parents need to take advantage of TEL (The Tennessee Electronic Library) now that the school year is about to begin.

TEL is a virtual library that you can access from your home PC, your school library computer lab or your iPhone — anywhere with an internet connection.

TEL provides access to more than 400,000 electronic resources, including magazines, scholarly journals, podcasts, videos, e-books, test preparation materials, federal census records, Tennessee primary source materials and more!

All types of not-for-profit libraries participate in TEL and benefit from the wide range of information offered by TEL databases, including homework help to new readers, consumer health information, business resources, leisure reading suggestions, current events essays, academic and civil service test preparation help, and genealogy and family history sources.

More than 1.2 million searches are performed each month across the various TEL databases. To access TEL go to tntel.tnsos.org or to the library’s website and click on Internet Resources and scroll to TEL.

Looking for a job? The Career Coach will be in our parking lot on Aug. 12, from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. The Career Coach is provided by The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development. These vehicles will arrive on the scene to provide a mobile computer lab with Internet access, create a venue for workshops including résumé assistance and interviewing skills and assist in completing job applications. To reserve a place, sign up at the nonfiction desk located on the second floor of the library or call 472-2163.

There will be an e-book reader workshop for Barnes & Noble Nooks on Aug. 10, from noon until 2 p.m. This workshop will teach you how to download free books with the R.E.A.D.S. service. Make a reservation by calling the nonfiction desk.
