Michigan eLibrary (MeL) Databases at your School!

Teachers, students and parents can find reliable, vetted resources for classroom projects, papers and instruction in the Michigan eLibrary, http://mel.org. Using Google is fine, but using MeL resources takes the guess work out of whether a source is reliable or not. Plus, MeL resources that focus on K-12 education are structured with educators in mind. We have added some new resources this month that will be available for the next three years and are of particular interest. They include: eLibrary, CultureGrams, Opposing Viewpoints in Context. They join the continuing MeL databases specifically for K-12: eLibrary Elementary; Kids InfoBits Infotrac Junior and Student; Gale Virtual Reference Library; SIRS Discoverer; SIRS Renaissance; and LearningExpress Library—MeL’s test and tutorials database where students can take skills building tests and courses in the core subject areas beginning in grade 4 through college including college entrance exams such as the ACT and SAT. Please check out MeL’s Kids and Teens Gateways, http://mel.org/kids and http://mel.org/teens.

Below is information on Comcast's Internet Essentials Program. It is a great program aimed at individuals who have at least one child receiving free school lunches.

Comcast offers reduced internet for $9.95 a month (plus tax) and a laptop computer for $149.99 (plus tax) at initial enrollment. The computers come with Windows 10 installed. Computers with upgraded software are also offered for $250. There are four qualifications for the program:

  1. Be located in an area where Comcast offers service

  2. Have at least one child receiving free school lunches through the National School Lunch Program

  3. Have not subscribed to any Comcast services in the last 90 days

  4. Have no outstanding Comcast bills or equipment

To sign up for the program individuals need to call 1-855-8-INTERNET (1-855-846-8376). An application will be mailed to the resident. It needs to be completed and returned with lunch program documents from the child's school. Upon receiving the application Comcast should let applicants know within 7-10 days if they qualify.
