It’s finals week, January 18th - 20th, at Oak Park River Forest High School.  If your teen is looking for a little extra help - look no further than the Oak Park Public Library.  Starting Sunday, January 16th and continuing through January 20th, the library is offering lots of support:

  • Need a place to study?  Study rooms are set aside for any teens or tweens who need a quiet place to study by themselves or do group work.   
  • Stumped on a problem?  Ask a librarian for help.  Unlimited resources are available  including www.opplteen.org offering online tutoring.
  • Want to learn how to use www.opplteen.org?  Sunday, January 16th, between 1 - 6 pm, is the teen website launch.  Come signup, discover online tools, and get your free giveaways!
  • Want support?  Maggie Wiggins, Teen Services Librarian, and other librarians on staff have the answers to all your questions.  Maggie says, “If I can’t figure out the answer to your question, then we’ll go to www.opplteen.org and access an online tutor.  I want to help you learn how to help yourself so that next time - you’ll know how to find your answers.”  

Come by the Oak Park Library during finals week!
