The Seattle Public Library offers programs and services to help students of all ages succeed in school.

K-12 students can get help with their homework, and kids without homework can read and play learning enrichment games with trained tutors. Teens have the opportunity to get academic coaching and earn service-learning hours. Parents can drop by to meet librarians and volunteers at your local Library branch, and get a tour of the Library's student resources. Find out how the Library can help your student succeed!
