You've got your card...now what? The first step is to activate it. You can do this by visiting your nearest branch of the CPL, or online at http://calgarylibrary.ca/get-a-card/.
Next, check out the CPL's new website. They have a great page for teen readers at http://calgarylibrary.ca/browse_audience/browse-audience-teens/. Here you'll find links to help you with your homework, book suggestions and best seller lists, and a list of volunteer opportunities for Calgary teens.
My favorite link is the e-Library for Teens ... connect to great resources for e-books, audio books, online magazines, and free courses!
Once you are set up with your membership, you should also inquire about The Alberta Library (TAL) card. This card gives users in good standing access to over 300 public, post-secondary and government special libraries across the province...a great service for IB students! Find our more about TAL cards here.
