In partnership with Northwestern State University’s (NSU) Education Department, the Natchitoches Parish Library (NPL) has begun offering a free tutoring program at the library. The tutors are completely free and open to the public and are available every week day from 2 PM to 6 PM. Appointments are recommended and are scheduled in 30-minute blocks. Tutors are able to work on reading and math skills with students from pre-k to elementary. Three to four tutors will be present each day, so multiple people can schedule the same time slots. Multiple spots may be booked if there are extra tutors available. To reserve a spot, call the NPL Children’s Desk at 318-238-9222.
“We hope to increase literacy and provide kids confidence in their studies,” says Jessica McGrath, NPL Director. “The wonderful tutors from NSU are giving access to something that would normally cost parents money, but like all library services, it’s free here for everyone!”
If you have any questions, about this or any other NPL activities, you may call the NPL (318-357-3280).
