Need HELP? Homework Help Assistants and DML volunteers are standing by, ready to help! Students in K-12 can visit a Homework Help Center at available Branch Libraries to get help with homework and school projects, or to get extra practice in a subject area of their choice. There are also free STEAM activities, educational games, and reading coaching for students without homework or for those who finish their homework early. Computers are available for use and printing is free!
