Thanks to the Schott Foundation

The Library provides free homework help to students in kindergarten through 8th grades at many of our branch libraries in the afternoons during the school year. Homework Helpers at these locations assist students with homework assignments and provide skills building assistance on any subject.
A generous grant from the Marge & Charles J. Schott Foundation will support Homework Helpers in 16 library branches for the 2015-2016 school year.

Duke Energy Foundation

The generous support of the Duke Energy Foundation made it possible for the Library to offer free Brain Camp programs at the Main Library and selected branch locations throughout the summer.  The Library's Brain Camp programs let children create fun memories while making sure they stay on target academically through STEM educational programs, reading, group lessons, computer activities, outdoor play, and crafts.
