Back to school and Live Homework Help

We keep repeating our reminder about Live Homework Help. School is back in session, and students in grades 4 through beginning college can get help from live tutors through our website. The tutors are available every day from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m...7 days a week. They can help with math, science, language, social students, etc. Give it a try!

Everyone can check our databases 24/7, or receive help from a reference librarian somewhere in the country 24/7 too! Go to: and enter your library card. Also, Massachusetts participates in a nationwide 24/7 reference service.
Should you need a question answered when our library is closed, just log onto and proceed!

MassAnswers is a cooperative project of Massachusetts Regional Reference Center libraries and other cooperating libraries, who have joined with the nation-wide 24/7 Reference collaborative. MassAnswers is initially funded by federal grant funds authorized by the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. MassAnswers is coordinated by the Boston Regional Library System, a service of the Boston Public Library.
