Connecting young students with resources to help them complete their homework and improve their study skills isn’t always easy for busy parents. But now, after-school homework support is available at the South Lake Tahoe Branch Library in the recently opened Library Homework Center.

Staffed by volunteers, the Library Homework Center is a welcoming, safe and supportive place of learning. The Homework Center volunteers, assisted by the library’s professional staff if needed, provide help in locating appropriate library materials and guidance in effective use of both print and online learning resources.

The Homework Center not only makes available the information resources for a project, but also provides, for a small fee, physical materials such as paper, colored pencils and folders needed for finishing a report or project.

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