We are happy to have the Carl Neiman Chapter of the DAR fill our display case with a very patriotic display for Constitution Week. Be sure to take a look on your next visit to the library.
We would like to remind everyone about an excellent database the library subscribes to called Learning Express Library. Here you will find GED practice exam and preparation courses, career preparation tests for law enforcement, real estate, fire fighters, and the military, as well as civil service tests for postal workers and many more.
There are also improvement skills tests for math and reading for elementary, middle and high school students, and adults.
This database may be accessed at the library computers, or from your home computer by visiting the library’s website at douglascountylibrary.lib.mo.us.
Among the new books at the library you will find:
