Congratulations to Jael, Madison, Sydney, Victoria, and Khushi! They won the 2016 Battle of the Books and will be taking the Battle trophy back to Franklin for one more year.
Have you checked out Tutor.com yet? Westland residents can get FREE homework help from a live tutor. I just tried it and got help solving a quadratic equation. It was quick and easy and all around pretty amazing.
To access tutor.com, click here: http://westlandlibrary.org/research#hh and select Tutor.com from the list of available homework help options.
