Many students are challenged by their homework and sometimes have no one at home to help them understand their assignments and complete them. The Homework Help program provides much-needed face-to-face tutoring by trained volunteers for children K-12 and the post-secondary level in our libraries.
Thanks to the generous support of Elisabeth Lahti, a part-time coordinator oversees the program, coordinates the volunteers and keeps the program on track. In 2015 and 2016 alone, 2,188 students received invaluable assistance.
More services have been added to the offerings, including SAT/ACT Test Preparation, College Scholarship Writing, Financial Literacy, Summer Young Adult Book Clubs, How to Avoid Test Anxiety, and Poetry and Literacy.
