As a service to the Community, the Westbank Library District offers use of The Gathering Room at the Westbank Library free of charge to tutors from 4:00-6:00 Monday–Thursday during the school year.
There are no scheduled hours exclusively for tutors at The Commons at Laura’s Library. Instead, The Commons is available to all library users when not reserved.
- Tutors are limited to working with three (3) students or less at a time.
- The library does not provide secretarial services to cancel appointments, change pickup times, provide references, etc.
Exceptions: Library Programs
Although The Westbank Library District welcomes the use of the Gathering Room and The Commons to tutors, our first priority is Library Programming. During Library Programs, the space is unavailable for tutoring. For planning purposes, a sign in the Gathering Room and The Commons will display times & dates of scheduled meetings; however, occasionally the Library will need the space at the last minute. If a Program is scheduled, we ask that tutors vacate the room one hour prior to the Event.
Issues to Consider
- Tutors should bear in mind the Gathering Room and The Commons are in constant use so the environment may be less than ideal for study.
- If the Gathering Room or The Commons are unavailable, tutors can consider using the tables in the adult wing of the Library. During peak usage periods, tutors may feel this environment is unsuitable for tutoring and prefer an alternate venue for tutoring sessions.
