Through offering the latest bestselling books, blockbuster movies, special resources and exciting events, the Southlake Public Library is turning the page on typical library expectations. No matter the subject, chances are there is something for every reader among the more than 45,000 printed titles for children, teens and adults, current magazine selections, and downloadable eBooks and audiobooks. From helping students with school projects or test prep, to assisting job hunters or individuals wanting to learn a new language, the research center offers multiple online investigative tools and databases accessible from any computer.
