Tutoring/Computer Help at Campbell Library
Helping students review materials and do their homework. We also work one on one with patrons who have questions about their computers, devices or software. A background check is required so contact the library a week before you would like to begin. Tutoring is on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3:30-5:30. Volunteers are welcome for any time frame.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
