Online Library Resources for K12 Students
Online information resources add value to education. The good news is that every state government in the Southwestern Union provides high-quality resources to residents, libraries, and schools for no additional expense to overstretched school budgets! Our five state libraries leverage state and federal funds to bring parity of information access to all residents.
