A bright FUTURE is waiting for you ! !
The Alameda County Library has a lot to offer and we want you to get as much as you want to ensure the best future you can have.
With your free membership and Alameda Library Card you will have access to things like our extensive databases including 1700 periodicals, 4700 magazines, 89 wire services many of which are updated daily so you can get up to date data on current events before the books could even come to our shelves.
We have an online Literary Criticism site, and an Opposing Viewpoint site that help you understand the pros and cons of some of the most controversial topics out there right now. You can even take practice tests for such careers as Firefighter, Paramedic, Nursing, Teaching, and so many more.
One of my favorite things is the free Museum passes you can print from the comfort of your home. And if you have some spare time why not learn a new language with our Mango Language sites.
Students ready for college can get a “plan your future pathway” guide to help select your future career complete with testing that help pinpoint your strengths and interests. Practice GED, PSAT, SAT, ACT and CHSPE tests online are always available.
We have links to self-help and managed hotlines to help you deal with issues you may be experiencing or may need as a referral for a friend, or just to talk with someone about whats currently going on with you.
For our younger visitors, primary and secondary students can log on and communicate with a live tutor on our “Homework Help” website, this is available until 10 pm for those last minute problems you just can’t solve yourself.
If you’re not taking advantage of your Library you are truly missing out on a lot of fun and learning.
Come experience us at any of our great local locations throughout Alameda County, we’re here and eager to help you.
Our Webite is listed on your Alameda Library Card and is www.aclibrary.org
