LBPL Family Learning Centers


A Family Learning Center can be found in many of the LBPL libraries. Supported by the efforts of the Long Beach Public Library Foundation and its generous donors, these Centers offer a collection of homework support materials and computer-based learning opportunities to enrich student study skills and develop parent participation and support.

Family Learning Centers aren't just for kids!

They're a great place to develop resumes and apply for jobs, access our Digital Library to take a course, conduct research, or work on a marketing plan. Need computer access or help with a new technology? The Family Learning Centers at the Main Library, Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library, and Mark Twain Neighborhood Library also welcome adult learners!

Family Learning Centers provide:

  • Supervised homework assistance for students on a drop-in basis.

  • Computers with Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint to help students complete their homework assignments.

  • Books, reference materials, databases, and other online resources to support student information needs.
  • Opportunity for parents to interact with library staff, get assistance using library materials, and learn how the Library can help your children and family.

  • The Centers at Main, Mark Twain, and Michelle Obama Libraries provide space, support, and technologies for adult learners and job seekers
