If you visit one of 11 Seattle Public Library branches on certain days after school, you’ll witness something amazing: seemingly ordinary, mild-mannered citizens put on capes and tights and transform into superheroes.
OK, they don’t really put on capes and tights, but they’re still heroic…They’re faster than a speeding bullet when it comes to solving homework problems. They help with homework because their generous hearts are more powerful than a locomotive. (Just like Superman doesn’t get paid to rescue all those people who fall off tall buildings.) And they’re able to leap into helping any K-12 student with any homework subject in a single bound.
Does a homework assignment make you feel like you’re falling off a tall building? Let us introduce you to some of these Homework Help Superheroes…
