The Highland Park Harvey R. “Bum” Bright Library has created a new print collection of K - 12 materials to assist caregivers with their student’s education. The collection was developed in response to the many new education styles that families are having to navigate.

From children’s encyclopedias to understanding Common Core Curriculum to PreCalculus guides, the collection is a great resource for understanding the foundational principles taught in classes. This physical collection is a new addition to the many online resources the Library has available. For instance, with HelpNOW, students in kindergarten to early college can access a live, online tutor to assist with a variety of subjects.  

To view online presentations by Library staff to learn more about using the online databases and HelpNOW tutoring please visit the Library's Vimeo Showcase

There is no charge for a library card for residents of the Town of Highland Park. To sign up for a library card, please visit the Library website to access the online application, call 214-559-9400 to apply over the phone, or visit the Library in person.
