It seems like summer just began, and it is already time for kids to think about going back to school. A new school year means new research papers and new homework headaches. Let your local Mid-Continent Library branch help!
There’s so much to do with summer ending and school starting: clothes to buy and schedules to keep. Here’s one less thing to worry about: your child’s class work. Why not let the Claycomo Branch help you with your children’s homework with our Live Homework Help. Free online tutoring with real tutors is available everyday from noon to midnight in math, science, English, social studies, and composition.
As you head back to school, don't forget the library has all of the resources to make your year successful. The library is a great place to study, but you can access many library materials from home, school, or wherever you happen to be.
Live Homework Help connects students with online tutors who can help with subjects ranging from history to math.
The Mid-Continent Public Library has several online resources that are beneficial for students and adults alike. You will find them on our website, and they can be accessed from your home computer, too.
One resource is our card Catalog. Here you can search books, audiobooks, CDs, and DVDs; see the branches where they are located, and put them on hold. You will receive a notice when they are in at your library.
School has started back up again, and brought with it some great things. Kids get to see their friends every day, eat some delicious cafeteria food, and after-school activities get going in full swing. Every year, I hoped I had escaped homework forever. Every year, it found me.
It seems like just yesterday our kids were counting down the last days of school. They were so excited about their summer vacation! And now, it is time for them to go back. I know when I was a kid, I hated the "BACK TO SCHOOL" commercials on TV. They were awful, constant reminders that your freedom would soon be over.
Fall is approaching, cooler weather is around the corner, and the kids are back to their studies in school! Just as you’re settling in, you hear: "Mom, I have a project due already NEXT WEEK!" or "Dad, I don’t get this stuff!" Whatever will you do?
