The ‘Study Zone’ educational assistance programs available to students K-12 at King County Libraries

  • Written by Leanne Christensen, RSD
Local libraries are a wonderful resource for students, parents and community members.  One of the many innovative programs offered by the King County Library System (KCLS) is the “Study Zone.”

The Study Zone is a great place/program which allows for students to study, do homework and get help with their questions.

Volunteer tutors provide free homework help during Study Zone hours. Students can find help in all subject areas, including math, science and MSP/HSPE and SAT test preparation.

How do students join Study Zone?

Students are not required to register or provide personal information to participate in Study Zone. There is no need to sign up in advance, just drop in any time during Study Zone hours.

How much does it cost? The Study Zone program is a free service of the King County Library System. There are no registration fees and there is no cost for students to participate.

Grades K-12: Study Zone tutors offer help with ALL SUBJECTS for Grades K-12, at every Study Zone location, including math help and MSP/HSPE test preparation.

Duvall Library Board President Paige Denison shares, “Our Duvall library is a tremendous educational resource for the entire community. The new state of the art facility, now open an additional 22 hours weekly, provides not only the additional space but also the computer availability to accommodate the popular Study Zone program for local students.”

Both the Carnation and the Duvall Libraries offer the Study Zone. Their current schedules are as follows:

Carnation Library:  Tuesdays from 3:30–5:30 p.m. (additional days to be determined)

Duvall Library:  Thursdays from 5– 7 p.m.

There is also an “online” Study Zone available Monday – Thursday from 3–8 p.m. and on Sundays from 1–6 p.m.
