TEL Databases


Do your kids wait until the last minute to tell you about their homework assignments? Finding out about a big report the night before it is due is never easy. But the branches of Hawkins County Library can help! You can find articles, images and even videos to help with their homework assignments from the Tennessee Electronic Library.

Instead of sending your kids to the deep end of the Internet with a generic Google search, have them start looking for articles on the library’s website first. They’ll get better search results to things they’d have to pay for thru Google, like articles from the New York Times and National Geographic.

But that’s not all TEL has to offer!! Learn to speak another language or take practice ACT, SAT or PSAT tests, or prepare to start a job search. TEL has the resources.And the best part: these free resources are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, anywhere that you have an internet connection in Tennessee.
