You can access great databases full of information on the library's website. These databases can be accessed at the library or at home and offer the same information found in reference books, newspapers, journals and magazines. You can read the information and print it right from your computer! You'll need a Worthington Libraries library card to access these databases from home.

I'm a librarian who loves reading literary books, environmental treatises, short stories, calls to social action, graphic novels and anything with a dark sense of humor. When I'm not helping library patrons, you can find me debating the merits of Star Wars, feeding my YouTube addiction or attempting to emulate my favorite authors by writing stories of my own.
