Student Learning Lab / Homework Computers

Does your child need a quiet place to study with a reliable internet connection in an environment similar to a study hall? 

Students ages 8 and older can book two-hour appointments in the Student Learning Lab at MCPL WausauDuring these study sessions, students will be provided with a quiet, adequately-spaced work area with a strong Wi-Fi connection that will allow them to do research, attend virtual lessons, or catch up on homework. These appointments are specifically for study and homework purposes only. Students are expected to work independently during their sessions, though library staff will be available to offer research help and limited technology assistance.   

Students can bring their own laptop or tablet, or they may borrow one of the library's laptops. Students should bring any other necessary equipment with them, such as headphones and a USB drive.

Students 13 years old and older may be unaccompanied, but students 8–12 years old must be accompanied by a parent or other adult caregiver for the duration of their appointment.

Appointments will be made in two-hour blocks, Monday through Friday, at the following times: 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.; 11:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m.; and 2:15 p.m. to 4:15 p.m. Students are allowed one appointment per day, and appointments can be made up to seven days in advance.

During their appointments, students will be seated at least six feet apart from one another and are required to wear a face mask at all times. If a student cannot wear a mask for medical reasons, attempts to accommodate that student will be made.
