Homework Help @ Your Library…and beyond!

Homework HelpWith school just starting, lots of us are stressed out with tests, quizzes, homework, extracurricular activities, friends. . . I’m sure you know what I mean.

The good news is that the Seattle Public Library is here to help.  If you find yourself struggling, there’s several important resources, available for all grade, ages, and often in multiple languages (though this varies from branch to branch).

First, check out in-person Homework Help.  This is available at Beacon Hill, Broadview, Columbia, Delridge, Douglass-Truth, High Point, Lake City, NewHolly, Northgate, Rainier Beach and South Park.  This service is generally available several hours a day, Monday through Thursday (not including holidays), but check with your individual branch, as the hours vary branch to branch. Students are able to treat this as a drop in session and are not required to sign up before arrival.

However, if your local branch is like mine and does not have in-person homework help, or you don’t want to leave your home, then take a look at online Homework Help (provided by SPL, powered by Brainfuse). This service is available seven days a week from 1-10 pm in both Spanish and English.  There, you will be able to get help from tutors for Math, English, Science, and Social Studies.  However, for this site you do need a library card and pin number.
