52 Ways to Use Your Library Card: Week Six

Week Six: Get Homework Help.

The school year is back in full swing, which means projects, reports and homework! Lots and lots of homework.

A new school year also means the return of the Homework Help program to the Broad Rock and North Avenue branches. Every Monday-Thursday from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. come to either location and get free, hands-on assistance from a Certified Richmond Public School Teacher. Come prepared with your homework or research assignments. The program is open to all students, K-12. You do not have to be enrolled in a Richmond Public School to participate.

But that's not all! Check out our Online Databases for assistance with your research. Need to know both sides of an issue? Check out Opposing Viewpoints in Context! Writing a biography on a historical inventor? Look them up on Biography in Context. Don't forget about Find it Virginia ,which "offers a one-stop source for newspaper and periodical articles on a wide range of topics, as well as resources specifically tailored to help Elementary, Middle and High School students with research assignments." All of our databases can be accessed both inside and outside the library. All you need is to have your Richmond Public Library card number!

Of course, don't forget about asking your Librarian, the ultimate search engine, for help!
