Teachers will be at Linton library to help students

Wednesday, November 6, 2013

Students of Linton and surrounding communities have the opportunity to get homework help out of the classroom at the Linton Public Library.

The library will offer the expertise of its faculty members who are former teachers and home schoolers to help students in grades one through eight with their studies.

Library director Richard McLelland said students can ask for help in any subject Monday through Thursday from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. with the library's Teacher at the Library program.

"It's whatever they need," he said.

McLelland said asking questions in class in front of peers can be a major issue for students. He said offering a time where students can ask questions they might not ask during class is important.

"Here they can come in and sit and there parents, teachers and friends are not there," he said. "Some kids are timid. This is a way around that."

McLelland said the service can also be beneficial to homeschool students who might need a little more instruction on a certain topic."Sometimes homeschool teachers have varying levels of expertise," he said.

For information on the Teacher at the Library program contact the library at (812) 847-7802.
