Parent Survey: How Can the Library Best Offer Homework Assistance?

The Dayton Metro Library is seeking input from parents on what kinds of homework assistance their child needs most. Surveys will be available at all Branches of the DML system during the week of March 31-April 6. Parents can also complete a survey online at (link is case sensitive).

“Since 2017, there has been an AmeriCorps federally-funded homework help program operating at the Northwest and Madden Hills Branch Libraries,” said Kaye Jeter, Del Mar Encore Fellow. “Dayton Metro Library was awarded a grant from the Del Mar Foundation to implement a more extensive homework help program, transitioning from the AmeriCorps model to a more comprehensive, library-led volunteer initiative. Getting parental input in the form of these surveys a key element in our process.”

Individuals who complete a paper survey at the Library will receive a phone/tablet stand as a gift, while supplies last.

Library Homework Help volunteers can:
• Review school assignments
• Offer feedback on projects
• Guide students to reliable Library resources
• Connect students to Library staff expertise
• Suggest effective study skills

Dayton Metro Library currently offers free Homework Help assistance at the Northwest, Madden Hills, Huber Heights, Trotwood and Burkhardt Branch Libraries. Visit these Libraries to get a schedule, or call 937.463.2665.
