The Public Library – an Excellent Tool for History Fair

There is a wealth of resources at your public library that can help you in your History Fair search. There are books, DVDs, and other items that can help you find good, quality information. There are also online databases, most of which can be used from home. Here are the links to the three local public library online databases:

http://www.downersgrovelibrary.org/books/databases_websites/all_databases.php

The only password that you need to know is your library card number. Scroll through the databases; many of them are specific to different subject areas. Indian Prairie Public Library has been notified about History Fair as well as Woodridge.  The librarians at all of these locations would be more than happy to help you find information.

If you don’t have a library card, find out which library district you live in and get one! Even without a card, the public library has a lot of tools that can help you be successful with History Fair.
