Fall is here, kids are back in classrooms, and the St. Paul Public Library is here to support their success in school.
West 7th Library, 265 Oneida St., and all library locations, have free WiFi; computers with internet access and Word, Excel, and Powerpoint; and low-cost printing and copying.
Nearby Highland Park, 1974 Ford Pkwy, has a Homework Center where students of all ages can drop in and work on their homework independently or with the help of volunteer tutors. Homework Center hours are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m.
Additionally, library staff are happy to help find information and resources for students – it’s one of the things we love to do! At the library, students can access a wealth of print and digital sources to write research papers and complete school projects and presentations.
St. Paul Public Schools, and many other public and charter schools in St. Paul, automatically get a library card when they enroll in school through the Library Go program. Library Go allows students to check out items and use online resources. Visit LibraryGo.org to learn more.
St. Paul Public Library is here for students remotely, too. Anyone with a library card can visit sppl.org/homework to get free online, one-to-one homework help in English and Spanish from 1-11 p.m. every day.
