HELLO PARENTS! You are an integral part of your student's success for sure, and we appreciate being partners with you on your student's school journey.
The library is an essential service that students need for success. The librarian is here to assist your child in a multitude of ways including locating books for leisure reading, finding books for required reading, navigating research, using and checking out laptops, finding materials for projects, and engaging in activities that appeal to their creative sides through circuitry, drone use, VR headsets, and more! The library is also just a great place to be for any student just looking for somewhere to relax, be comfortable, and feel safe.
Below are some links to helpful sites. Learning Express also has guides and tools for adults. Check it out!
The state subscribes to some great databases and Learning Express is great for access anytime, anywhere to college and career readiness information like AP, ACT, and SAT practice tests, information regarding pretty much any occupation (level of education needed, job descriptions, and more,) resume writing tips, etc. Check it out!

A love of reading is one of the greatest assets a person can have. We have a
diverse collection here at Damonte and encourage you to discuss with your
student what books they are reading. It opens up some great conversations
and keeps you in-the-know about what books they have checked out, what
interests them, and their personal views on a range of topics :)
