The Marshall Public Library is expanding its efforts to help local children and teens with their homework.
Recently, the library added two computers dedicated to helping students, ages 17 and younger, complete their homework assignments. The new computers double the total number of youth-homework specific computers from two to four.
“We’ve seen an increase in the number of children needing access to a computer to complete their homework and many of the children do not have access to a computer at home,” said Kath Ann Hendricks, Young Adult Librarian at the Marshall Public Library. “We’ve stationed these computers near a help desk so staff will be easily accessible to answer any questions and in a quiet spot where they can focus on their studies.”
Youth can also print their homework for free for the first ten pages and ten cents for every page thereafter.
The new machines join seven computers reserved for teen use, six iPads that were donated by the Friends of the Marshall Public Library for children ages 6 months to 11-years-old, and 13 computers for adult use. Two of the adult machines are dedicated to job search and post-secondary education activities like scholarship searches and submitting college applications.
