Tutors needed for library study zone

Valley residents’ skills in math, science, English, social studies and study methods can make a difference in a child’s life at the Study Zone, which is held weekly at area libraries.

The King County Library System is recruiting volunteer Study Zone tutors to assist students from elementary through high school. All it takes is a two-hour weekly commitment or availability for flexible substitute scheduling. Volunteers are needed for all sites throughout the county, but Snoqualmie is one of the libraries with a particular need.
