Connecting students with resources to help them complete their homework and helping students improve their study skills aren’t always easy for busy parents.

However, for the second year, after-school homework support is available at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library in the Library Homework Center. Last school year nearly 100 student visits were logged at the center.

Staffed by volunteers, the Library Homework Center is a welcoming, safe and supportive place to complete homework. The Homework Center volunteers, assisted by the library’s professional staff if needed, help students find appropriate library materials and use both print and online resources.

The center not only provides the information for a project, but also makes available, for a small fee, the physical material, such as paper, colored pencils and folders, needed to finish a report or project.

Computers are available for assignments that must be typed and printed.

The Library Homework Center is open from 3 to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Friday and from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday. The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library is at 1000 Rufus Allen Blvd. For more information call (530) 573-3185.
