Student Success Center

The Student Success Center is a pop-up learning space for elementary students (K-5th grade) needing a supportive learning environment from a trained volunteer for homework help and skills practice. Students are welcome to utilize the Student Success Center in these 3 ways:  


Library volunteers are available one afternoon a week for two hours at select Library locations to help students complete assignments, practice a skill, or connect to Library resources. Student support is available on a first come, first served basis depending on volunteer availability; no registration is required. All Library locations will have a Student Success Center by Spring 2025.  


Note: While the Student Success Center is intended for student support, it is not a tutoring service. Volunteers provide help and guidance to the best of their ability, but are not certified teachers. Volunteers do not complete assignments for students.
