Homework Help at Library

Homework Helpers

Homework Helper volunteers are available weekly to help students successfully complete their homework assignments. Please check with the library to determine when and where the Homework Helpers are scheduled, and bring a specific homework assignment or project. The Homework Helpers are typically adult volunteers, and as such may not have the skills needed to help peers or more advanced students. See the Homework Help Program flyer (PDF) for more information.
