Are you looking for ways to help your students with the new school year? Ascension Parish Library in Gonzales is conducting two workshops on free online library resources that are perfect for homework help and curriculum planning! These workshops will give you step-by-step introductions to numerous resources that teach math, English, science, history, and test preparation. These workshops will be held in our technology classroom where every person will be able to sit at a desktop computer and personally explore which resources most interest them.
