Can you believe it's already back-to-school time in San Antonio? We're shocked! But, we sure love learning here at BiblioTech, so we're also pretty excited.

We have all kinds of resources to help students, from access to a shelf full of study guides on cloudLibrary to academic databases (click Login in the upper right corner of the page to see the super secret password). On RBdigital, we have lots of ebooks and audiobooks popular on classroom reading lists, including classics such as Thomas Paine's Common Sense and H.G. Well's The Time Machine

We also have an entire area of our website devoted to educators, because teachers rock! Check out BiblioTech EDU, where you can find Classroom Sets of ebooks by grade level, make a request for our Outreach Team to come register your students and tell them all about BiblioTech, or even schedule a field trip to a BiblioTech branch. 

As your public library, BiblioTech also has resources for those of us who may not be formal students right now, but who want to learn something new every day!

  • Lynda offers courses in everything. This amazing resource can teach you how to write a better resume, take a better photo or use Excel. The possibilities are endless!
  • Another resource that offers such a broad array of courses we couldn't possibly list them all is Universal Class. Learn how to train your dog, how to arrange flowers, or how to do algebra, plus hundreds of other skills.
  • Want to learn a new language? Mango offers over 70 different language learning courses, many with placement tests so that you don't have to start all over if this is a lifelong goal! In the Mango App, there is an autoplay feature that is perfect for commuters!
  • Want to learn a new coding language? Sign up for Treehouse and get fluent fast with fun, gamified paths to success.

One last thing, did you know we offer GED resources? And, even better, thanks to scholarships made possible by the extremely generous Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Texas, Inc, we are able to offer free GED testing! Learn more and sign up today.
