Today’s Anniversary: American Library Association

It's October 6, and on this date in 1876. the American Library Association was established.  Your local library can be a great resource for you when you complete your American School courses, particularly if you're asked to write a research paper in one of your English courses.  It can provide a number of good sources for you, including books, periodicals, videos and more, but make sure you cite your sources properly according to the style and directions given to you in your course.  It is important to give authors credit for their work that you use in your paper.  Not doing so would be plagiarism, which is frowned upon and is in violation of our honor system.
