Students in grades K-12 can get free homework help at the Sonoma Valley library every Tuesday after school from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., from now through May. The library provides a quiet space, a healthy snack, supplies and trained volunteers to help with an array of subject areas.

Volunteers assist children and teens with various homework assignments and help develop literacy and mathematic skills throughout the year. Students of all ages are helped individually and in small groups on a drop-in basis, no registration is required.

Children’s librarian Clare O’Brien said that parents whose children have participated in the program have told the library staff that the Homework Help program at the library has transformed their home life.

“They appreciate how it helps their children to get into the ‘homework habit’ and that it avoids a nightly struggle,” she said.

The Homework Help program began in 2016 and O’Brien said that the library is committed to offering it as a standard service for the foreseeable future.

“Libraries have always been good places for students to do homework, now with the Homework Help program, the library is a great place for kids to do homework,” said O’Brien.

The library is located at 755 W. Napa St.
