January 23, 2015, Monroe, NC - Is your child in the 1st through 8th grade? Is he or she struggling with a tough assignment? The Union County Public Library offers free, personal educational assistance for elementary and middle school students from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, at the Main Library in Monroe.
Homework helpers are volunteers from local schools who help children understand and organize their homework, guide children in completing assignments, and show them how to use the library for research and reference.
“This program is a win-win for so many in our community,” says Library Director Nina Meadows. “It not only helps school children with critical subjects like math, science, and reading, but it also gives our teen volunteers valuable experience.”
The help sessions will continue through April 30. Registration is not required. Help is offered on a first come, first serve basis. Please bring appropriate texts and assignment instructions.
The Main Library in Monroe is located at 316 East Windsor Street.
If you are a teenager who is interested in becoming a library volunteer, please call 704-283-8184.
