There’s a free drop-in homework club in every library, with staff on hand to help your child with their school work. We don't tutor children but can help them find the information they need and advise them on how to use it.
Help with reading
We will set aside a time to listen to your child reading as we know that this encourages them to enjoy books and improve their skills. You can bring in your own book or chose one of ours.
Open evenings for parents
Once a term we run an open evening for parents giving you advice on:
- homework tips
- suggestions for homework help websites
- ideas for improving your child’s reading
How to use the homework clubs
Homework clubs run during term-time and half-term holidays. They do not run during the Christmas, Easter and Summer holidays.
You can drop in without booking – but best to get there early as our reading sessions may be timed and availability is limited.
Children under 8 must be accompanied by a parent or carer and all children under 16 will need parental permission to use the internet.
Find out details and times of your nearest homework club by clicking on the link to the flyer in Useful Documents below.
There are three Wizzi Wizzi Coding Clubs in Islington libraries, one at West Library on Saturday 11am to 12.30pm, one at North Library on Saturday 11.30am to 1pm, and one at Central library on Saturday from 2 to 3.30pm.
The clubs are for 8 to 14 year olds who want to learn how to make their own games and other cool stuff using computer code.
You just need basic computer skills and the ability to read. If you know how to use a mouse and keyboard then you’ve already got what it takes.
