• Oct. 18 -- 7 p.m. Tutoring Discussion Panel
This past spring, the Pea Ridge Community Library was awarded a national grant from the American Library Association -- Libraries Transforming Communities initiative. Within the grant application, the PRCL proposed a student-led tutoring program hosted and funded by the library. Approved students from the high school would assist younger classmates virtually with their coursework while also receiving volunteer hours from the library. The goal of the grant is not just to attempt to enact the said program, but also to teach library workers facilitation skills that will empower them to lead community conversations now and in the future. Watch the Panel Discussion on the Facebook page to find out more information and ask questions live.
