This Isn’t Your Dusty Set of Encyclopedias
Digital resources are a wealth of help for all stages of our lives. At www.LBPL.org, the World Book Online is a digital encyclopedia, but don’t mistakenly think it is an eBook! It can be described as an interactive learning experience, as you can see here:
World Book Early Learning has games and activities for children who are in the pre-reading stage and those learning to read;
World Book Kids is the best resource for school age kids writing reports, planning science projects, or who are just curious;
World Book Student, Discover, and Timelines are geared more for upper elementary and middle school students;
World Book Advanced is primarily for high school (and older) students and includes a citation builder (a huge help for those writing term papers);
World Book Enciclopedia Estudiantil Hallazgos, which is entirely in Spanish;
Bonus - each section has California curriculum aligned resources for teachers to use.
