Chrome Library Extension

This is really neat!  Install the Library Extension for Chrome and when you’re searching Amazon, a little box will show up above the ‘buy’ options telling you if we have that item.  If we do, you can click ‘borrow’ to see the status of the book and put it on hold if it’s checked out.  You can also set it up for Marshall to see books they have, too.  The only thing to remember is the search is for the specific item’s ISBN, and we may have a different type or edition available.  Still, this is fun!  Check it out and save yourself some bucks by borrowing books instead of buying!

Install the extension in Chrome (It only works in the Chrome browser)
From the extension page choose the libraries you want to show
When you’re on Amazon, a little stack of books will show in the far right of your address bar.  You can also choose Portneuf by clicking on the books, choosing “Portneuf” and clicking the green plus sign.

Happy Searching!

Homework Help

School has started once again which means that the time for homework help is here!!! We at the Portneuf District Library are here to help with children’s homework Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 4-6pm, and Thursday, 4:30 p.m. – 6p.m., grades K-12. Homework help has already started and will run throughout the school year. Students must bring their homework or school assignments with which they need assistance.  Art and messy craft projects will not be included in homework help. To ensure that we are able to make our time as effective as possible we are limiting the concentrated amount of time we spend tutoring a single student to a half hour or one hour so that we are able to help other students as well. The student is more than welcome to ask for help if they need it after that first hour, but the library staff will no longer be able to walk them step by step through every problem. If you have any more questions please ask a librarian or call the library at 208-237-2192.
