If you are often disappointed in the movies you have watched after reading the book , go the other way around. Reading the book after watching the movie is good too. It’s up to you. Whatever your decision, be aware that every movie ever made has been written first, at least as a script, and a vast amount of those scripts are inspired by books. So, if you like movies, you also like books. It’s logical right? Then, read one of those marvelous books already adapted into a movie or that will get a shot on the big screen soon.

      

These titles are available, but on Overdrive only.

 

We do have “A Monster Calls” and “Before I Fall” movies already. Look!

 is a never endless source of factual information about a lot of subjects, from science to plants and history to sport. I like the “World Resources” interactive maps which offers the possibility to compare continents, provinces or cities over different factors.

World book also offers an awesome guide on research projects that is totally worth reading. Tons of helpful advice for each step, from choosing a subject to presentation. It will help you evaluate the reliability of your sources and organize your data efficiently.

 is the most comprehensive and authoritative source of information on all things Canadian. Well displayed and easy to understand. Lots of good material for homework in there!

With it, you don’t have to find and browse through piles of magazines to find articles on the subject you need. Articles are often valid references for research projects so it is worth a look. You may need a bit of research skills to get what you’re seeking from this one though.

overdrive have way more eBooks and audiobooks than Hoopla. They also offer material in different languages: English, French, Spanish, Chinese, etc. There is no music in that database though.

Hope you’re thrilled now! Remember that you need a library card number to use those services. Your mom or dad or sister or turtle won’t give you their card number? 😦 Well, it’s still just one trip here to get a card and after that, rain or shine, PJ’s on and slippers, you may have access to FREE great books, FREE movies, FREE magazine articles, FREE good music, FREE factual information, FREE… Well I guess you get the point now.
