PLS has taken on two new databases that should definitely be explored!
The Consumer Reports database assists consumers in making better purchasing decisions on whatever they may be shopping for. Consumers can search and browse through information about cars, appliances, electronics, home & gardening supplies, products for babies & kids, shopping, health, and money. The database also provides ratings for the items that people are interested in. If you are thinking about making a purchase anytime soon, browse this database to get the most bang for your buck!
The Fold3 database offers a vast collection of original historical documents and personal histories from the past. These valuable documents can help people expand their knowledge of their own ancestry. With a travelling genealogy program going around PLS for Summer Reading 2013, this database could help you get started on exploring an interesting personal history.Add a comment

Students from Michelle McDaniel's class at Polo Road Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina, heard about the multiple tornadoes that came through our state in May and sympathized with the Oklahomans affected.
To show their support, they wrote cards expressing their well wishes, safety tips, and positivity about the future. The photo to the left is just an example of one of the many thoughtful cards written by the Polo Road Elementary School children.

This year PLS will be offering three prizes that will be given away at the end of the online program. One adult participant and one teen participant will each receive a Galaxy Tab 2 (seen on the right).
One child participant will receive a nabi 2 Tablet (seen on the left), which is a special tablet geared towards children.
These cool prizes were provided by the Pioneer Library System Foundation.
Throughout the program, you can log and review the books you have read, which will enter you into the random drawing to win one of these prizes. We had a great time with our Winter Read program, so if you missed it come join us in all our reading fun!Add a comment
