Homework Center

We’re here to help you with your homework! In addition to the many great reference books we have in the Bridgeport Public Library, we also recommend these Web sites. Need info on authors, illustrators, books and book awards? Try our booklinks


Students in Grades 8 and younger are invited to use one of our four homework center computers to work on assignments. These computers offer Microsoft Word, two Facts on Files science experiment programsn, IConn online database, and Internet Explorer.

Students may sign up for one hour sessions on the homework computers. We can save their work on computer disks for them, but the disks must stay in our department. Printing of homework from these computers is in full color. The first three pages of homework can be printed for free. After that, there is a modest per-page fee to cover the cost of ink cartridges and paper. (15 cents for B&W, 50 cents for full color.)

We have another three computers that can be used for games and pleasure web-browsing by students in Grades 6 and under.
