The Learning Center will be opening for the school year on Monday, August 24! The goal of the Learning Center is to meet the needs of the community by offering a blended and engaging tutoring session while keeping a personal touch. We believe tutors and students will build meaningful relationships which can result in greater engagement and success. All services are free.
The Learning Center has implemented some changes as follows:
ALL TUTORING IS BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
In-person Reading tutoring, using the Utah State guided reading program.
Virtual Reading tutoring, using the RAZ KIDS guided reading program and a ZOOM format
In-person Math/Homework help for 2nd-12th graders

We have not been charging overdue fines at our library since mid-March. Beginning September 1, overdue fines will be assessed on items returned late. Due to the necessity of quarantining returned items, there will be a 1 week grace period after the due date before overdue fines are added to your library account.
