Family Learning Centers
Family Learning Centers (FLCs) offer drop-in homework help, homework support materials, and computer-based learning to enrich student study skills and develop parent participation and support.
FLCs aren't just for kids! They are a great place to develop resumes and apply for jobs, take courses through our Digital Library, conduct research, or work on marketing plans.
Family Learning Centers can be found at:
- Billie Jean King Main Library
- Burnett Neighborhood Library
- Harte Neighborhood Library
- Mark Twain Neighborhood Library (temporarily closed)
- Michelle Obama Neighborhood Library
Visit the location's webpage or call for FLC hours.
Family Learning Centers provide:
- A "Supply-brary" that provides supplies and resources for students to successfully create school projects and presentations. Available supplies include:
- kits students can use in the FLC
- consumable supplies—like construction paper, popsicle sticks, presentation boards, glue, markers, and other craft items—to help students demonstrate their learning and earn their best grade!
- 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, and online resources to support student information needs.
- Opportunities for parents to interact with library staff, get assistance using library materials, and learn how the Library can help children and families.
- Space, support, and technologies for adult learners and job-seekers.
