KidLinks Grades K - 6
KidLinks logo Welcome school partners from Hopkins, Minneapolis, Eden Prairie, Maple Grove, Edina, Mound and Orono. Students write Book Blast and Quick Poll questions each week for KidLinks. They also create crossword puzzles and share their favorite books and authors.
Books Reading BOOKS & READING
Encourage kids to discover their family history with books that celebrate the One Minneapolis One Read program. Engaging multicultural stories will also help students explore the importance of family and learn about different cultures.

Homework Help HOMEWORK HELP
The Kids InfoBits database will help your students find reliable information from references books, magazines, and newspapers at their reading level. Students can easily browse subject headings including "History & Social Studies" to locate articles and images or they can enter terms in the search box.

Help students connect with their world through social studies stories from DOGOnews, featured under current events. This online newspaper and web guide for kids includes articles by a team of student contributors ages 8-15.

  • Homework Help: TEEN TOPICS
    We consider the subject guides found in Teen Topics as browsing non-fiction for teens, covering topics where it helps to have a librarian's guidance to find accurate information. These guides may help in homework assignments. Use Elections & Politics for social studies, Healthy Body & Mind for health, and Jobs & Money for economics assignments. Need help preparing for life after high school? Check out College Information. Want to find ways to enrich or survive high school? Explore School Stuff.

  • Read On: NEW THEMED BOOK LISTS
    Check out our two new book lists in Read On. Read & Listen recommends titles that have great audio books so you can listen as you read along. College Bound? suggests titles for readers looking for a challenge and interested in college.

    We also renamed a link at the top of the Read On page from Pick Your Next Books to Book Reviews & Resources to make it clear that you can find book reviews and research authors here. Feel free to make other suggestions to me as you think of them.
