I went to http://en.wikipedia.org/I created an account. I am MrsB2.0Librarian, this is my Wikipedia username.
Once I was logged in I found the entry for Palos Verdes Library District!
I edited the page. I added info about Live Homework Help..."The Palos Verdes Library District offers LIVE HOMEWORK HELP!!

Then I saved the changes.
Using Wikipedia was so easy and very easy to post too.
Why is it important to know about Wikipedia and understand how it works?
Wikipedia is an interesting beast. It is good to know how it works, because it will lead you to think more critically about the information that is on it. I find that because anyone can edit information it may not be accurate. But understanding it will help me use this resource more accurately.
