Ben’s Guide to the U.S. Government

Ben's Guide to the U. S. GovernmentBen’s Guide to the U.S. Government, a service of the Government Publishing Office (GPO), is designed to inform students, parents, and educators about the Federal Government, which issues the publications and information products disseminated by the GPO’s Federal Depository Library Program. It is our hope that Ben’s Guide to the U.S. Government fulfills that role.

Kid’s e-Reading Room

Due to overwhelming demand, we have added a Kid’s e-Reading Room to our Jasmine Digital Library. This is a new service especially for parents worried about some of the more adult e-book and audiobook holdings in Jasmine or ones that want more targeted searching for their children. The new site gives the normal subject browsing but also offers the ability to filter juvenile e-books by Interest, ATOS, Lexile, and Reading Level.

Education doesn’t just begin when a child reaches kindergarten– it begins at birth.

Over the years The School Foundation has prided itself on supporting and contributing to Florence School District 1’s K-12 teachers and students. With the creation of the Start SMART program, we’ve added a brand new goal– assisting parents in preparing their children for kindergarten.
