Clearwater Memorial Public Library was awarded an $8,000 grant by the Idaho Learning Partnership from the Lumina Foundation in partnership between the Idaho Commission for Libraries and the Office of State Board of Education to better meet the needs of adult learners, especially veterans.

The grant was offered to libraries (including branches) in 11 identified Idaho counties of which Clearwater County was included. The objective is to better support the goals of increasing access to high-quality education for veterans and adults and supporting rural community and economic development.

As a part of this program, we are excited to announce we have available to library patrons, regardless of age, access to Tutor.com. This can be accessed through the library website http://www.orofinolibrary.com using your patron library card ID.

Tutor.com offers one-on-one tutoring from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific Time in a variety of subjects (Math, Science, English, Writing, Social Studies, Spanish, ESL/ELL, GED/HiSet/TASC, Microsoft Office, and Citizenship).

In addition patrons can access around-the-clock help in the SkillsCenter Resource Library where you have access to thousands of searchable resources in a self-study environment.

For those needing assistance with job search and resume writing, you can connect with an expert career tutor or access helpful job search resources including finding job opportunities online, get help completing an application, writing a stronger cover letter and resume, and practicing and preparing for an interview.

Tutor.com packets are available at the library. Contact Cathy Judge at 208-851-8247 for more information.
