Library’s after-school homework club

To assist parents and caregivers in helping students achieve their potential, Tulsa City-County Library presents the “After-School Homework Club @ Your Library.”

This partnership between Tulsa City-County Library and AmeriCorps offers assistance to third- through eighth-grade students in completing their homework assignments.  The 2015-16 school year marks the fourth year for Tulsa City-County Library to offer the After-School Homework Club @ Your Library.  Community volunteers also assist by providing their professional expertise in the core subjects.
