Virtual Book reviews and tutorials to assist you this school year
Learn how to use our online catalog to find what you need at the library
When people think about school, one thing that comes to mind is homework. It is true that nobody likes doing it. Assignments can just be time-consuming! Many people spend hours bent over their work for a sole purpose of turning it in, getting a good grade. What if one could turn in a paper, getting a high grade without having to spend your time stressing over various assignments? We make that option a possibility. Just go to Tutor.com for all your homework help.

I love this book so much! I’m a sucker for anything Arthurian, so I was already pumped when this book arrived. But it’s so much more than a remake of a legend. Deonn really creates a new legend all on her own by entwining elements like American history and college life, magical encounters and evil demons, first loves and enemies. Bree’s story is reminiscent of Clary, a young girl who is taken by surprise when she encounters this whole other world that exists right alongside the world we know and who becomes determined to become a part of it. If you like the Mortal Instrument series, strong female leads, and stories of self-discovery, this book is amazing.

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren and I’m the Teen Librarian here at the Scott County Public Library in Georgetown, Kentucky. Growing up in Georgetown, my first introduction to the library was through the bookmobile and then through the Main Street location, and then onto our current building, though it certainly has changed since then too! I’ve had the pleasure of being a patron, then an intern, and now an employee of the Scott County Public Library, and while I’ve enjoyed working at other libraries, I am so happy to be home! I wanted to share a little about me and what I do here at the library.
As the Teen Librarian, I oversee the Young Adult Collection by purchasing new titles and keeping the collection up to date. But even more important than the books (and I do love the books) is the teen programming that I coordinate in conjunction with the Teen Advisory Board, or TAB. As the staff supervisor for TAB, I have the pleasure of working closely with teens who are enthusiastic and bright as we create programs that appeal to many teens across Scott County.
This teen space is here for you, just like me! So if you have some thoughts you want to share, some artwork, or book recommendations, we’d love to put those up for you! Email me at email@example.com!
Friday, November 20 - A Moment with Lauren
So far this year has been anything but normal. During the shutdown, my workspace was my house and let me tell you, I am not an organized person. I am also very easily distracted, so when the urge to reorganize my closet or settle in with a book I wanted to read just for me, I indulged myself. In some ways, we all need to indulge ourselves now and then but only as long as we still finish what we need to do, the things that others have asked us to do for school or work. I would share a picture of my home office but unfortunately half of my kitchen is currently in it (and that’s a boring story I won’t bore you with that involves new cabinets that led to new everything). But I would love to see what sort of work station you all have! Do you spread everything out on the dining table (my preferred method) or do you have a desk you work at? Do you work outside on nice days? (Honestly, this is my favorite, although I am easily distracted by my foster puppies. And naps.) Do you have a study buddy? (My cat likes to supervise everything.) Do you have siblings you get help from or that you help? If you would like to share how your at home work space has changed, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
