Learning Resources


The PLACe has computer software programs to help with reading, writing, math skills as well as CD-ROMs in other subjects such as biology, Spanish, history and statistics.

No appointment is necessary to use our computers.


There is no appointment necessary to use our media collection. We cannot check out media, so plan on using the media in The PLACe.

We add new titles and new editions of textbooks all year, so check back occasionally.
