Library-trained homework helpers can assist students struggling to understand a homework assignment or needing ideas to start a research paper. Homework helpers also are familiar with the range of Library's other homework help resources and can devote one-on-one time with students that librarians sometimes cannot.

 

The Seattle Public Library also offers a variety of homework help resources from its website at www.spl.org, including an Online Homework Help tutoring service, an around-the-clock Ask a Librarian reference service, and access to more than 60 specialized databases and online tools.

 

Online Homework Help, powered by Brainfuse, is made possible through a generous grant provided by The Seattle Public Library Foundation.

 

Individuals interested in becoming a Homework Help volunteer should contact Anne Vedella, Library volunteer services coordinator, at 206-386-4614.
