The Library isn’t just a place where students can DO their homework. Our branches actually offer homework HELP.
Students in grades K-8 are invited to visit one of our 10 Homework Centers for free after-school help with:
- Language Arts
- Social Studies
Our centers are now CLOSED for summer; check back later for Fall registration, held in person at these Homework Center branches:
Homework Centers are in session Monday through Thursday during the school year. Centers are staffed by the following:
- Program Coordinators
- Homework Coaches trained through the America Reads programs at
Cleveland State University, Baldwin Wallace University, and Cuyahoga Community College
- Trained volunteers: Interested? see Volunteer Opportunities
