This collection of bookmarks has been created and is maintained by the librarians at the Richardson Public Library. Our intent in listing these bookmarks, is to list a few Internet resources that are interesting, contain useful information, or that supplement the materials within our physical library.
The library has Internet Explorer installed on our Internet computers and these are linked to a networked laser printer on each floor. Printing is 15 cents per page for black and white prints and 50 cents per page for color prints.
