For Teachers

The Children’s Department offers a variety of services specifically for our students and teachers. Our staff is eager to support teachers’ needs and student learning. Let us know how we can help!

Virtual Class Visits

Introduce your students to the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library by scheduling a live Zoom presentation by one of our librarians. Visits can be tailored to your specific needs, including book talks, storytimes, database tutorials, and library skills instruction. To schedule a virtual class visit, email Senior Librarian Kristin Olivarez or call (626) 307-1358.

On-Demand Homework Help provides on-demand tutoring, homework help, test preparation and writing assistance for students in grades K-12 in over 60 subjects.

Tutors are available 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. Assistance is also available in Spanish seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
