Homework Help:

  • Did you know the library has study rooms available on a first-come-first-served basis?  You can use them to meet with tutors, work on group projects or just have a quiet place to study.
  • We have a list of private tutors available covering a wide range of grade levels and subjects…Ask Us at the front desk to see it!  (Please note: BPL maintains this list for the convenience of our patrons. BPL does not support or endorse any of these tutors.  They have not been vetted in any way. It is your responsibility to interview and select a suitable tutor.)
