Homework help is consistently one of the most requested services at the Alameda County Library. Many young people lack access to homework help at home and cannot afford the high cost of private tutoring. The Library’s six Homework Centers provide high quality, one-on-one homework assistance to children and youth in communities throughout Alameda County. The Homework Centers accommodate more than 8,000 student visits per year, providing one-on-one help through paid staff and volunteers. New this year is an online tutoring program that provides youth with access to accredited tutors who are well-versed in the full range of academic subjects, including high school and honors level. Any young person with a library card can access this help-from the Homework Centers, their homes, or any other place with an Internet connection.
