Update on Tutoring in-Person
The Literacy Council's Learning Center
TLC is still closed for in-person tutoring due to Covid-19. We will update you when we open it back up. Tutors are able to come in to get any material they need. Please call the office first to make sure someone is there as many of us are still working virtually. 815-963-7323.
North Suburban Library (NSLD)
NSLD will be closed to in-person tutoring for quite a bit longer. They are not sure when they will reopen. When the weather gets warmer, tutors and learners are more than welcome to bring lawn chairs and meet outside in that grassy patch by the former North Suburban Women’s Club building parking lot. NSLD extended their Wi-Fi so that there is a strong signal in their NSLD parking lots.
Call ahead and see if the rooms are available for tutoring. The libraries that are open right now are Hart Interim at 214 N. Church, East Branch on East State St., and Montague Branch on the west side. See more information below.
Hart is allowing walk-ups who need to use a laptop, read the paper, or other library-related needs, to use a room for 45 minutes. No advanced reservation (except special cases, like test taking or doing a work training, that requires extra time). Staff keeps a close eye on the time. So far customers have been far between and are respectful of the 45 minute rule and mask requirements.
No study rooms are open yet.
IDA in Belvidere
If tutors want to meet in person, tutors need to call first to set it up. IDA is allowing two people at a table for one hour. (815) 544-3838
