Back to School Fairs Recap

We hosted two Back to School Fairs in September to show off some of our free resources designed to make homework and school projects a little easier. They are all available when you are using a computer at the library, and all you need is internet access and a library card to use them from home or on the go!

Everyone who came was able to browse our info tables and check out demonstrations of easy-to-use tech resources. If you couldn't make it--or if you need a refresher of what you saw--take a look at our list below. 

Homework Louisiana
Get a paper proofread, math problem solved, or prep for the ACT. Connect with a live tutor Sunday through Thursday from 2pm - midnight. Adults can prep for the GED, work with a career coach, get help with resumes, or prepare for a citizenship test. Spanish and Vietnamese tutors available.
