Homework Help


In-person homework help services have been temporarily suspended as CCPL continues to follow health and government guidelines regarding group size and spatial distancing.  For homework assistance, please call the library at 804-751-CCPL (2275), use our chat service, or submit a Your Personal Librarian (YPL) request





CCPL knows that completing homework assignments can be difficult. In addition to the many materials available for loan in our libraries, we also have a number of online resources which may help solve this problem. These resources are just a place to get started with online homework help. These databases are available for use both inside and outside of CCPL. And remember, finding an article in our databases is not the same as finding it on the Internet!
