Thanks again to support from the Horton Fund, elementary school students will find homework help at Fairborn Community Library on Tuesdays from 3 – 6 p.m. during the school year.
Staffed by qualified tutors, the Horton Homework Help Center in the library’s meeting room will give kids a bit of extra attention and support as they develop skill in general areas of learning (like reading or math), or as they work on specific school assignments.
“Parents and caregivers often ask us about tutoring services for their children,” says Caitlin Wichterman, Head of Youth Services at Fairborn Community Library. “We know that a drop-in library program could supplement services provided by private tutors, and could benefit youth throughout our community.”
The library is a natural location to offer such a resource. Besides helping children progress through learning in these early years, we are also solidifying their understanding that the library is the place to go for answers. Lifelong learners are also lifelong library patrons!
Tutors will be here on Tuesdays when school is in session. Check the library calendar for specifics, or call if you have questions. And help your kids get a bit of extra support and attention by bringing them to the Horton Homework Help Center!
