I finished yet another book from the “To Read” list I shared in my INALJ blog post; this book is number 4 on the list, and it’s a good read for those needing more information on homework help programs.
Homework Help from the Library: In Person and Online by Carol F. Intner gives a good overview of the process of starting a homework help program (whether in person or online) at a public library for students. I really liked the graphic organizers provided in the back of the book, which will be helpful for any librarian needing help with teaching students how to organize information in their homework assignments. The book is geared for public librarians, who do not have as much access to the curriculum in schools as teachers and school librarians; in order to combat this common issue, the book offers ideas for collaborating and building stronger relationships between the library and the school. The book also gives brief overviews of each technological aspect of potential homework programs. For example, librarians may need knowledge in various software, hardware, and computers in order to help students with their own devices. I would recommend this book to anyone needing more information about creating a homework help program for students in public libraries. Overall, I rated this book 3 out of 5 stars.
