Backpacks are packed, pencils are sharpened, and we are ready to head back to the classroom! From homework help to craft inspiration and so much more, Naperville Public Library has a variety of resources to get your students ready for a successful school year!

For a little homework help…

Through the library, students have a selection of resources available to supplement their classroom learning. One resource is Brainfuse HelpNow, which offers live tutoring from experts in math, science, reading, writing, and social studies. Another available option is the Learning Express Library, which features more than 1,000 online tutorials, practice tests and e-books to assist students of all ages. Head over to www.naperville-lib.org to explore even more resources available for your student’s academic success.

For some peace and quiet…

Study rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis at each of the library buildings. Simply sign in at the circulation desk and choose an open room. Each room features a whiteboard, table, and outlets to work on class projects or study for exams.

For those cute first-day-of-school T-shirts…

Use our Silhouette Cameo Cutter! Whether you want to create a first-day-of-school T-shirt or a special card for your student’s teacher, the Cameo Cutter can create unique shapes out of paper, vinyl and more. Classes to further your crafting knowledge are available at the library seasonally.

If they’re already cramming for the SAT…

Peterson’s Test & Career Prep is a great online resource that offers online, full-length standardized tests and more. On this platform, you and your student can also learn more about colleges, financial aid and scholarships.
