Smithfield Library, Springville Road Library Offering Afterschool Study Help for Birmingham Students
The Smithfield Library is offering free homework tutoring help for elementary- to high school-age students on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 3:30 and 4:30 p.m. The program, Power Hour: Making Minutes Count, is being offered through November 22 to students who register in advance at the Smithfield Library.
The afterschool tutoring service began last week, said Heather McWilliams, Smithfield Library branch manager. “This is more of a homework help session than a class. It's ongoing and it's every Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30-4:30,” McWilliams said.
The Springville Road Library has also started a new afterschool program designed to help Birmingham area students improve their grades. The program, Study Skills and Listening Skills Classes, will meet again on Wednesday, September 28, at 4:30 p.m. “Get the school year started the right way with education consultant Ursula Bradley. She will speak to students about essential study skills and listening skills.” To sign up, call Springville Road Library at 205-226-4085.
