Library & Learning Resources

The La Center Elementary School Library is open to students every day that school is in session, 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.  Students often enjoy visiting the library during these hours for reading, working on homework, and completing school projects.

There is a citation maker (no ads) here as well as guides to both conducting research and effectively using what you find.

There is also an excellent guide to evaluating sources.
