Homework Central

Wednesday, February 6, 2019, 4:00 pm

Homework Central at Woodridge Library provides a quiet place every week for teens to read, research, study and write. Laptops and reference books will be available to help you organize and complete your work. Library staff will be there to show you how to use our research databases. The library has other spaces for tutoring sessions, gaming and phone calls, but those things will not happen here. There will, however, be snacks to help you focus on your tasks.
