encyclopedias, and telephone directories.

available; children are encouraged to use the full range of multimedia capabilities
of today's computers.

books, magazines, newspapers, video tapes, compact disks, cassettes, and
Compact disc listening and video tape viewing stations join the
increasing number of library services including: fax machine,
photocopying, laminating, typewriters, public meeting room, travel
information, Internet access, and more.

willing to assist in research.

including storytime, sleep-overs, school outreach, and multimedia
presentations about library services to young children.
