Welcome to The Homework Zone!
The Parklands-Turner Library staff cares about the education and well being of youth in our neighborhood. In support of scholastic achievement, library staff invite children ages 8 to 15 to visit the Parklands-Turner Library on Wednesdays after school for a unique study hall opportunity.
Each Wednesday from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., library staff will establish a calm study environment called The Homework Zone in the children's room.
