Welcome Back to School!

Now that school is back in session, do you want to know how the Leon County Public Library will fit into your daily life? Here's a snippet of how we can help you and your family jump back into your busy school schedule.

7 a.m.: Wake up early and prepare breakfast with recipes that are sure to fill hungry tummies. 

7:45 a.m.: Take your time driving to school with an audiobook from Axis360 or Libby.

12 p.m.: Check out the Creating a Positive Work Environmentin Universal Class on your lunch break. These short, self-paced online courses are a great way to stimulate your brain. 

4 p.m.: Homework Hub is here to help with questions like “Is the sky blue or is it a reflection of the ocean?” Enroll your kiddos today. 

9 p.m.: Wind down for bedtime with a good book. There are so many to choose from and the library staff would love to help you find your next great read!

Amazing things are happening,
