More than Books...
The Ferris Public Library has recently added more than 30 biographies and numerous geography and history books to our elementary and junior sections.
Another service we are looking forward to offering in the near future is a new Ferris Library website that will give our patrons direct access to TexShare that provides more than 60 licensed databases from academic searches to Sanborn maps.
The library’s website will also have some awesome homework-help websites for school children of all ages.
New books: “Justice” (LP) by Karen Robard, “Only Time Will Tell” (LP) by Jeffery Archer, “Race” by Clive Cussler and Justin Scott, and “What to Expect the Second Year” (Dewey 649) by Heidi Murkoff.
