If we lived in a perfect world, one of the things we would find there would be a place each week in the library where the library offers young students free help with their homework.
In this perfect world, librarians would go out to the high schools and recruit the best student to come back and help younger kids who are struggling with math and English and science. Imagine the benefit. Imagine how motivated the elementary aged kid would be when week after week, a high school student takes time out of their day and talks to them about school.
Parents wouldn’t have to argue with their kids about homework, students grades would improve, mentoring relationships would form between the high school and elementary school kids.
