Summer is winding down, the school year is starting up, and the library is here to help students of all ages succeed in school! If you haven’t been to the St. Paul Public Library recently, you may not realize what lies inside or online: many essential tools for ensuring a great academic year.
Online homework help offers one-to-one assistance from trained tutors to anyone with a library card – and it is available free every day from 1 p.m. to 11 p.m. in English and Spanish.
For students who want in-person help, check out the Homework Center at Highland Park Library, 1974 Ford Parkway, open Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays from 4-7 p.m., starting September 25. The Center is a great place to study independently or to get help from trained volunteer tutors. Learn more at sppl.org/homework.
Access dozens of online resources for any grade level
Kids can delve into Explora Kids to learn about science, social studies, language arts, geography, and more. Older kids can use the Science Reference Center or Britannica School to find articles and information they need to complete homework assignments. See the full list of resources at sppl.org/digital-resources.
