Homework Help

Having trouble with that one math problem on your homework that you just can’t get? Need help finishing that book report? From 3pm-8pm Monday through Thursday at the library’s Information Desk, students are invited to bring their homework, text books, and other related materials for free tutoring in Math and English from Library staff. There is no registration required for this service, but it is on a first-come, first-served basis. Ask Ian Parsells, the head librarian, for more details.


Need more research materials from primary sources, and you just can’t make it into the library? The library offers a host of databases that you can access from any library computer, over our WiFi, or from home using your Derby Neck Library card number.
